Tuesday 7th June 2016

A glorious sunny and hot day today at the observatory with a few species new-in and on the move.

A Serin, presumed female (above), turned up early morning and stayed for several hours. 

Other migrants include 4 Swallow, 3 Goldfinch, 3 Lesser Whitethroat, 3 Common Tern, 2 Mediterranean Gull, 2 Swift, 1 Redpoll, 1 Blackcap, 1 Reed Warbler and 1 Nightingale. 

Turtle Dove and Chiffchaff are still here from the last few days.

A recent colonist first noted in the UK in 1993 and here in 2013, Cochylis molliculana looks here to stay.

Ringing: 3 birds ringed today in the form of 2 Linnet and 1 Dunnock.
