Really is the last day now!
Bright and sunny again through the morning with the southerly wind still annoyingly brisk; the only birds in the nets were Redpolls attracted by the playback and comprised 24 Common and 11 Lesser Redpolls – the majority were big, obvious pale birds with wings up to 81 but there was a scattering of really obvious Lessers, small and dark with wing lengths down to 69.
This morning's ringing - 24 Common Redpoll / Nordlig Grasisken; 11 Lesser Redpoll / Lille Grasisken
There were a few other birds around with a few Chaffinches, Bramblings and Greenfinches overhead along with one flock of c50 Waxwings and a single Red Kite while in the garden there were still 3 Northern Bullfinches (all ringed) and a Woodcock.
A walk north up the coast was pretty quiet, albeit pleasant in the sunny conditions with 4 Little Gulls feeding along the tide line while out across the fields there was an adult male Hen Harrier, a Rough-legged Buzzard and an adult male Peregrine while several small flocks of Waxwings whizzed about.
