Another wet and windy day that has allowed us to open just a few nets and for a couple of hours due to the rain. In addition, there was not much movements of birds around the garden; apart from 3 Red Kites and 1 Waxwing flying overhead. Therefore, we haven´t had a fruitful ringing day with 12 new individuals, being the Northern Bullfinch the highlight for today
Totals: Wren 2 / Robin 1 / Blackbird 1 / Goldcrest 2 / Chaffinch 1 / Northern Bullfinch 5
Lucky us, there have been mucho more going on at the tip. We got a SMS from Louis as they've just spotted the first King Eider Duck of the Autumn which made the day look very promising. And of course, we decided to join them and learning from such as experienced bird observer ;). Thanks so much for teaching me!!!!! Muchas gracias!!!!! It´s been great and a good fun ;) and I'l looking forward for the next time :)!!!!. I don´t have the right figures with me, as I'm more into to improve my identifcation skills rather than making properly the census; but roughly, there were important movements of Long-tailed Ducks, Eiders, Common Scoters, Velvet Scoters, Wigeons, Mallards, Teals and Little Gulls; along with small numbers of Pintails, Gadwalls, Red-throated Divers, Great Crested Grebe, Red-necked Grebe, 1 Gannet , 1 Pomarine Skua and 3 Kittiwakes.
