Thursday 30th March 2017


A harbinger of spring in the shape of the first Willow Warbler of the year was most welcome and always cheers one up. Other migrants this fine mild morning were 3 Mipits, 2 Wheatear, Swallow, Chiffchaff, Black Redstart, Yellowhammer & Merlin. Offshore not a lot but with it feeling a lot more spring like - who cares ?


Emperor moth is a stunning beast and another good reason to be cheerful.

4 birds ringed: Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Great Tit, Starling.
