What a difference a day makes!
After a disappointingly slow day yesterday, a change in the wind brought us a much better number of birds today. The light north-westerly delivered 121 new birds to our nets, with activity tailing off in the late morning. The bulk of the birds were Lesser Whitethroats (29) and Blackcaps (20). A second Grasshoppper Warbler for the autumn was a nice highlight.
