22nd April – Continued warbler passage, but hirundines scarce
Rob Duncan reports a good start to his two-week ringing trip, with a total of 128 birds ringed on Saturday 21st April, including what Chris Dee caught in the morning (see previous entry). Rob ringed a further 69 birds this morning, Sunday 22nd, before rain set in – mainly Willow Warblers, with good numbers of Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs and three Sedge Warblers. Other migrants appear to have been rather sparse, with "only a handful of hirundines so far" and one Whimbrel in the Landing Bay.
