1 Oct – Swallows after the rain
On Wednesday 1st October Richard Campey logged a Golden Plover on the Airfield, 8 Stonechats, 21 Robins, six Chiffchaffs, a few Goldcrests and an impressive 58 Wrens! After a very quiet morning things picked up once a band of rain had moved through and there was a strong movement of Swallows, with Richard seeing at least 300, while Chris Dee reports that some 124 were ringed, along with 26 Meadow Pipits, contributing to a ringing total for the day of 177. Chris and his group have now ringed 748 birds over their trip as a whole, since 23 Sep.
