He's still here!

 With reduced winds which had switched into the WSW allowing us to open almost every net, it was kind of expected that there would at least be a few new migrants to entertain us but that was not the case at all -  it was the second blank ringing session in two days, not what you expect from the second week of April..

Birds we did see through the morning included 2 Black Redstarts, 2 Chiffchaffs, 5 Common Scoter, 6 Goldfinches, 53 Red-throated Divers (a flock moving feeding positions all together), 2 Snipe - pretty much the only new migrants in the area and 3 Wheatears.
