Only 3 pairs of Meadow Pipits are breeding on site this year, the reasons for this are not fully understood. 

Although the rain has gone, the wind still has an element of north in it, making it feel cold and holding up what is left of any late migrants. Most of todays birds were Hirundines, with over 100 Swallows and 40 plus House Martins south. Other noteables were a Common Buzzard and a Carrion Crow south offshore, whilst on site a Reed Warbler, Jay and 4 Wheatear was about the best of it.

Only 1 Reed Warbler and a brood of 4 Meadow Pipit was all that was ringed today.
