Monday 17th November 2014

The Dusky Warbler is still on the northern part of the reserve & the smart male Black Red is still around the fort. An unusual call this morning, not recognised by the observers on site, came from a Bullfinch gaining height & circling over the observatory before heading inland that was quite probably one of the northern raced birds. Very few other migrants on site, or flying past, this morning. Of note in recent days is the number of new Wrens on site which suggests that they had a good breeding season this year & population pressure is forcing the little trogs to wander to new areas and seek out a home of there own.

9 birds ringed: 5 wren, 3 goldfinch, 1 blackbird.
