Friday 10th June 2016

Very few migrants about although yesterdays Garden Warbler is still with us. 7 Swallow went south, 2 Avocet flew inland & an immature Eider flew north just offshore. A male Sparrowhawk paid a brief visit to the northern end - although they nest not far away they are only rarely recorded here in the summer months. Another brood of Chaffinch appeared from the two pairs we have on site. The two new Blue Tit ringed this morning are dispersing juveniles from elsewhere.

9 birds ringed: 3 Chaffinch, 2 Linnet, 2 Dunnock, 2 Blue Tit.
