Saturday 11th March 2017

Several "first" of the year this morning in the form of 4 Goldcrest, 2 Chiffchaff, Firecrest & Black Redstart. These along with a small arrival of Robins plus southbound a couple of Mipits and singles of Woodlark, Siskin, Greenfinch & Carrion Crow. Offshore can be basically forgotten with the mist not helping although 61 Barnacles did go south just offshore in three groups.

More expected March fare are now appearing in the traps including Diurnea fagella

10 birds ringed: 3 Goldcrest, 3 Robin, 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Song Thrush, 1 Great Tit.
