Slow migration day

torsdag 11. oktober 2018
The sunshine and balmy temperatures are more like summer - and don't seem to encourage migration at all.
af Denise Lamsdell

Another change in wind direction and we hoped there would be more birds on the first round. The result was just twelve and more leaves than anything else. There was a minor flurry of Wrens and of the very few new Robins, quite a lot were adults. We've noticed before how experienced birds sometimes anticipate good conditions a day or two ahead of a larger cohort of prodominantly young birds. Still, we've had no reason to use the communial collecting bags or boxes so far so will wait to see what the next few days brings. With southerly winds forecast, we don't anticipate much improvement in migration through the ringing site for at least a week. However, we always live in hope of birds to make us busy.

Goldcrests outnumbered Robins today and a single Redstart was a bonus.
