Sunday 31st July 2016


At least 6 Willow Warbler on site this morning plus a new dispersing juvenile Green Woodpecker. The Treecreeper that arrived on site last Wednesday is still with us. A Fulmar that flew south over the obs into the river then departed back north again with other offshore sightings limited to a few terns.

Black Arches has only turned up here on a handful of previous occasions. It is listed as a "local" species that lives on Oak trees which probably explains why it doesn't visit us.

8 birds ringed: 3 Willow Warbler, 2 Wren, 1 Robin, 1 Linnet, 1 Green Woodpecker.
