Black Redstart

Back into the usual routine - calm and clear first thing with the cold NE wind picking up through the morning but we are now at the stage where some migrants are going to sneak through whatever the conditions; new birds comprised a Sparrowhawk, Blackcap, a Chiffchaff, 2 Goldcrests, a Nightingale giving bursts of glorious song on Icky Ridge, a Redpoll, a Reed Warbler, a Sedge Warbler, 7 Wheatears and 2 Yellowhammers.

Offshore a few bits included 2 Common Terns, a Gannet, a Red-throated Diver, 2 Red-breasted Mergansers and a Sandwich Tern.

Ringing: Blackbird 1, Sedge Warbler 1, Chiffchaff 1, Wren 1, Blackcap 1, Song Thrush 1
