Reed Bunting in the hand

A steady morning ringing with Hawky yesterday produced the following.

3 Reed Bunting
2 Redwing
7 Long tailed Tit
Blackbird (retrap)
11 Blue Tit
4 Great Tit

Adult male Reed Bunting (4)

1cy Male Reed Bunting 

Notice the pointed tail feathers on the above and below images and light brown T6 making ageing for both birds as 1cy (3) easy. If they had rounded tail feathers and have a strong black and white marks to T6 they would be aged as Adult (4)

1cy female Reed Bunting (3)
