Thursday 21st April 2016


Another rather cold and blustery day today with the winds persevering from the North East, haltering any sort of proper migration. Still, a few migrants dotted about here and there.

New arrivals came in the form of 3 Blackcap, 2 Common Whitethroat (pictured above), 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 2 Meadow Pipit, 1 Rock Pipit, 1 Yellow Wagtail, 1 Swallow, 1 Siskin, 1 Wheatear, 1 Jay, 1 Sparrowhawk and a lovely Ring Ouzel showing intermittently throughout the morning.

Sea watching produced 12 Cormorant, 7 Black headed Gull, 5 Brent Geese, 3 Common Gull, 1 Red-throated Diver, 1 Whimbrel and the first 2 Little Terns of the year.

Ringing: 5 birds ringed this morning including 3 Blackcap, 1 Chiffchaff and 1 Kestrel.
