Mon 4 Apr – Plenty on the move
Rob Duncan reports a quieter day for numbers, with 51 new birds ringed, including 25 Blackcaps. There were few Phylloscopus warbler retraps, suggesting that most of yesterday's Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler influx had already moved on. There was strong passage of Meadow Pipits and hirundines, plus 3 White Wagtails and a Grey Wagtail at Rocket Pole Pond. Also 2 Sandwich Terns in the Landing Bay, a Merlin and 3 Stonechats. Four of the six Long-tailed Tits were retrapped.
