Open nets, close nets, open nets, close nets
Despite the forecast promising more or less blanket cloud and continuous, heavy rain throughout the day it wasn’t quite that bad and there were a couple of half decent weather windows in the morning where we managed to get some nets open for two, hour long sessions which produced a half decent 66 new birds with a Firecrest the highlight in amongst 35 Goldcrests and a flock of 11 Siskins plus a few Robins, Wrens, Chiffchaffs etc. A few Finch flocks passed overhead while the Slavonian Grebe was again offshore and the big Barnacle Goose flock was still in the fields over towards town.
Today's totals from a very stop, start morning - 7 Wren / Gaerdesmutte; 5 Robin / Roedhals; 1 Blackbird / Solsort; 1 Blackcap / Munk; 4 Chiffchaff / Gransanger; 35 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge; 1 Firecrest / Roedtoppet Fuglekonge; 1 Blue Tit / Blamesje; 11 Siskin / Groensisken
A walk around Kroghage at lunchtime in the increasingly heavy rain was hard work in the unpleasant conditions but did produce an adult male Redstart which had a decent pale wing panel but I don’t think it was enough for an eastern samamisicus bird, a first winter Little Gull and 4 Stonechats along with a few Robins, Chiffchaffs, Goldcrests etc.
