Tuesday 4th July 2017

An increase of juvenile Starling over the last few weeks has grown the roost to over 600 individuals, they are also increasing in volume as they settle into the Holm Oaks at the end of the day.
A warm start today with very little wind, there were 2 new juvenile Chiffchaff and an adult female Lesser Whitethroat around the Observatory, offshore 19 Curlew and 8 Cormorant were noted going South and 5 Little Tern were just off the beach.

Doing well for moths that don't visit us very often at the moment including varied Coronet.

40 birds ringed: Starling 26, Linnet 4, Chiffchaff 2, House Sparrow 2, Dunnock 1, Great Tit 1, Lesser Whitethroat 1, Robin 1, Whitethroat 1, Woodpigeon 1
