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. 

Totals comprised:

Dunnock/Jernspurv - 3, Robin/Rødhals 6, Redstart/Rødstjert - 2, Grasshopper Warbler/Græshoppesanger - 1, Marsh Warbler/Kærsanger - 2, Icterine Warbler/Gulbug - 2, Lesser Whitethroat/Gærdesanger - 29, Whitethroat/Tornsanger - 17, Garden Warbler/Havesanger - 5, Blackcap/Munk - 20, Chiffchaff/Gransanger - 2, Willow Warbler/Løvsanger - 15, Spotted Flycatcher/Grå Fluesnapper - 1, Pied Flycatcher/Broget Fluesnapper - 5, Red-backed Shrike/Rødrygget Tornskade - 1, Tree Sparrow/Skovspurv - 9, Goldfinch/Stillits - 1.

Migrating birds were low in number - 2 Marsh Harrier and 5 Sparrowhawk were seen.
