Little of note to report as we end Spring and  await the start of Autumn passage. The only interest today was a couple of dispersing young Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap . Offshore 13 Sandwich Terns were moving through close inshore. The Glossy Ibis seen briefly at nearby Trimley Marshes failed to fly over Landguard airspace despite across the river towards Harwich.

Ringing today totalled 17 birds,  1 Blackcap, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Great Tit, 1 Dunnock, 1 House Sparrow, 2 Linnet, 2 Greenfinch, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Magpie, 1 Starling and 5 Meadow Pipits(pulli).
