Saturday 23rd July 2016


A slight breeze again today, albeit very calm and sunny, it did prove to be a lovely day. A few niceties were on offer.

This juvenile Black Redstart found one our mist nets this morning which could well have fledged locally somewhere.

New arrivals came in the form of 4 Sandwich Tern, 4 Swift, 3 Lapwing, 2 Swallow, 2 Yellow Wagtail, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Green Woodpecker and 1 Roseate Tern.


Tree-lichen Beauty was first recorded in 2003 with recent records probably now including some residents as well as immigrants.

Ringing: 10 birds ringed this morning including 2 Wren, 1 Dunnock, 1 Blackbird, 1 Great Tit, 1 Robin, 1 House Sparrow, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Green Woodpecker and 1 Black Redstart.
