Anyway the ringing was good with 43 birds being ringed and 4 recaptures, 2 of which were Great Reed Warblers that I ringed in January 2012 and the other 2 were Yellow Weavers of which one was ringed as an adult female on 11th October 2003, this is now the longevity record for this species, just shows the importance of a constant ringing site.
Birds ringed included 7 juvenile African (Bluebilled) Firefinch's you can clearly see the nodules instead of the gape.

A few Warblers were ringed including Great Reed and African Reed as well as 2 Dark-capped Yellow Warblers

Another special bird was a Redfaced Cisticola, only the second one that I have ringed so this was a very special bird indeed.
Numerous other birds were caught and ringed but they are all very common at this spot and have been discussed in other posts
