Thunder, lightning, torrential downpours and a strong, gusty, swirling wind seemingly coming from every direction at once from first light curtailed any ringing activity for several hours preventing the standardised ringing from being carried out; once we got a few nets open there were a few birds around as we ended up with 40 new birds made up predominantly of 24 Willow Warblers along with small numbers of the usual migrants – Spotted Flycatcher, Pied Flycatcher, Garden Warbler, Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat etc.
Today's non-standardised ringing - 1 Redstart / Roedstjert; 7 Lesser Whitethroat / Gaerdesanger; 2 Whitethroat / Tornsanger; 1 Garden Warbler / Havesanger; 2 Blackcap / Munk; 24 Willow Warbler / Loevsanger; 2 Spotted Flycatcher / Gra Fluesnapper; 1 Pied Flycatcher / Broget Fluesnapper
There wasn’t too much else to mention through the rest of this quiet day with 4-5 Sparrowhawks seen around the garden and a couple of Whinchats along the front fence.
Osprey over the station yesterday evening
