Wednesday 15th March 2017

Winter appears to be on the way out, and Spring is just around the corner. As this Fieldfare shows, the winter visitors are making their way back north, hopefully to be replaced by summer migrants.Yesterdays Wheatear is still here, but little else new except for 2 Goldcrests, a Redwing, Skylark and 1 or 2 birds still moving offshore, which included 2 Red-throated Divers, a Gannet and a Common Scoter north.

Better numbers of moths are beginning to appear in the traps, including the first Clouded Drabs.

5 Birds ringed: 2 Blackbird, 2 Goldcrest and a Dunnock.
