Yet another 37 Long-tailed Tit passed through this morning. All autumn we have had no repeat offenders but two individuals with one of the flocks were originally ringed here back in October so have joined up with a different wandering flock. Otherwise migrants limited to 2 Chiffchaff plus new Blacky, Songie & Blue Tit plus yesterdays Goldcrest and Bullfinch from a couple of days back still here. Vis mig limited to southbound 54 Goldfinch, 7 Chaffinch, 5 Mipit & Siskin. 5 Snow Bunting still on the beach with 2 Purps, 2 Turnstone & Rock Pipit by the point to keep the photographers entertained. 2,816 Cormorant went out to sea fishing with the conclusion being that there is a load of Herring out by the sand bars to fill them up on a daily basis.

Ringing: 20 Long-tailed Tit, 2 Blackbird, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Song Thrush.
