Saturday 13th April 2024

A quieter day, with many of the warblers having moved through, especially the blackcaps. Still a few willow warblers and chiffchaffs around, though they were less vocal and active. Wheatear numbers rose to 14 however, and 3 yellow wagtail headed south along with 4 meadow pipits. Med gulls are still on the move, though more seemed to be heading south today than north. A redpoll singing from the observatory compound was an unexpected encounter, though it didn't stay long enough for a photo. 

First Muslin moth of the season..

Birds Ringed: Blackbird 1, Blackcap 1, Cetti's Warbler 1, Chiffchaff 2, Wheatear 5, Willow Warbler 8, Wren 1.
