CES 5 - Norfolk Broads

This reed warbler had clearly lost its tail sometime on its wintering grounds
or on migration and had only grown this stunted half tail with strong fault bars. 
Despite an overcast morning and little wind the numbers of birds on our 5th CES visit were a little disappointing with 33 new & (10 retraps). Our first juvenile sedge warblers and grasshopper warblers of the year were caught.
