Wintering Reed Warblers are regularly encountered at Kartong both in the Typha reedbeds and the dry coastal and Acacia scrub that surrounds the wetlands.

We have just received news that a Reed Warbler ringed on 18/01/14 at Kartong was controlled at Hilgay Wetland CreationNorfolk on 11/08/2015 by Graham Austin of the BTO. This is the 6th Reed Warbler ringed at KBO to be re-captured back in Europe during the summer months. Details can be found on our Recoveries and Controls page.

Reed Warblers also seem to be faithful to the wintering site with 5 birds recaptured at Kartong the winter after ringing and 1 bird returning to Kartong in 2 successive winters.
