A very wintery start to the day, with temperatures lower than they've been in a while. Some good passage today, a ring ouzel dropped in late morning, a pied flycatcher was caught and ringed (perhaps our last of the year?) yet another great spotted woodpecker and a sparrowhawk were also processed. A pair of goldcrest adds to the handful we've seen this autumn, and chiffchaffs were all over the observatory as were blue tits. 

Clifden Nonpareil has now appeared here three years running. Feeding on poplar it could potentially colonise here. 

Birds Ringed: Blackcap 4, Blue Tit 15, Chiffchaff 8, Dunnock 1, Goldcrest 1, Great Spotted Woodpecker 1, Great Tit 1, Grey Wagtail 1, Pied Flycatcher 1, Robin 2, Sparrowhawk 1
