Perfect ringing conditions through the morning – pretty much flat calm with cloud cover keeping the sun off the nets; it was a bit quieter than I had hoped but it is still only July although birds caught did include a first summer male Serin – only the 9th to be ringed at the station with the last one being in 2011 in amongst 11 Marsh Warblers (including the first juvenile), 3 Reed Warblers, 7 Icterine Warblers and the first fully moulted, bright yellow juvenile Willow Warbler.
Totals today comprised; Marsh Warbler - 11, Reed Warbler - 3, Icterine Warbler - 7, Lesser Whitethroat - 5, Whitethroat - 2, Willow Warbler - 1, Serin - 1
The afternoon was hot and the morning’s vis mig at the point had all but stopped by the time I got out there with the only birds seen being a few Common/Arctic Terns and one flock of Common Scoter while 22 Goosanders, a Goldeneye and 5 Common Sandpipers were loafing around. Also of note were 3 Clouded Yellows out on the point, they’ve been there a couple of days but with a light but steady increase in other migratory insects – Migrant Hawkers, Painted Ladies, Silver Y’s etc. around the place it maybe bodes well for the next weeks birds?
