First Firecrests of autumn and a Wryneck
Chris Dee, who has been ringing on Lundy since Saturday, reported yesterday, 25th September, that he had trapped three Firecrests to date and that a Wryneck had been seen on 24th & 25th (also reported by Beccy MacDonald on 25th). Commoner migrants, however, had been quite thin on the ground, with even Swallow numbers quite low, in contrast with the strong passage reported from parts of the Devon mainland early this week.
