This is an aquatic warbler video from Belarus.
Translated from a report from the northern French nature reserve Reserve Naturelle de la Baie de Somme this morning, about birds caught for ringing:
Water Rail 1
Meadow Pipit 1
White-spotted bluethroat 2
Grasshopper Warbler 2
Aquatic Warbler 11
Sedge Warbler 45
Marsh Warbler 2 [see also here]
Reed Warbler 20
Garden Warbler 2
Willow Warbler 4
All birds, except 2 of the 11 aquatic warblers, and the water rail, had never been caught before.
It is really special that so many specimens of the rare aquatic warbler were caught.

An innovative tool for tracking the migratory patterns of waterbirds has won first prize in an ESRI International Conservation Mapping Competition. The “Critical Site Network (CSN) Tool” (CSN Tool) and the supporting “Flyaway Training Kit” (FTK) are some of the products of the Wings over Wetland (WOW) project, the largest flyway scale waterbirds conservation initiative ever attempted, covering the 118 countries included in the range of the African-Eurasian Waterbirds Agreement (AEWA): here.
September 2011: The first of tens of thousands of wintering geese have started to arrive back in Scotland as part of their annual migration. More than 1,000 pink-footed geese were recorded at RSPB Scotland’s Loch of Strathbeg nature reserve in Aberdeenshire so far: here.
