Sunday 23rd November 2014

Bit grim this morning with either belts of fine drizzle or rain resulting in poor visibility. Nevertheless 2 Long-tailed Ducks flew north then pitched in offshore & a ship coming in dragged 5 Gannets & a Pom Skua in behind it. Very little else noted moving offshore & what few birds were noted in the bushes were keeping their heads down. A push of the helligoland trap on the way down to the kettle produced a new female Sparrowhawk so if we are only going to ring one bird today we may as well make it a good'un.

Ringing: 1 Sparrowhawk.
