af Simon Davies

Bright and breezy with a brisk South-westerly wind limiting things a little bit but there were still decent numbers of migrants in the nets with 68 new birds caught; the most notable being a small influx of 15 Pied Flycatchers along with 4 Marsh Warblers and 4 Icterine Warblers with single figures of most other common migrants.   Other birds seen included a few Tree Pipits first thing, a Sparrowhawk, 3 Green Sandpipers (which spent a short time on the pond) and single Great-spotted Woodpecker and Nuthatch.
