Monday 10th April 2017

Back to a North Westerly Breeze today but the southerly wind yesterday did deliver a few migrant birds for today, which include this male, along with another male, Redstart on the reserve. The Little Ringed Plover was present for a second day with 1 Black Redstart and 2 Wheatear continuing to show well during the morning. Also seen this morning 7 Willow Warbler, 6 Chiffchaff, 4 Blackcap and 1 White Wagtail. Visible migration with 23 Swallow and 3 Goldfinch moving South.

Only 3 moths this morning after a chilly night from the North Westerly breeze but included the first Shuttle-Shaped Dart of the year.

12 birds ringed; 4 Chiffchaff, 4 Blackcap, 3 Willow Warbler, 1 Wood Pigeon
