Quite windy from the south, with cloud and showers, some again heavy.
Rob Duncan reports:
"A much quieter day today, with very little visible migration (no thrushes) and hardly any evidence of migrants on the island. A small trickle of Chaffinches south, with only a handful of Siskin on the move. Even the Swallows have all but gone, with just a couple of birds frantically trying to feed up to go.
Ringing was restricted to a couple of sheltered nets in the Secret Garden during the afternoon. A total of 50 new birds was made up of 38 Siskin (much lighter in weight than yesterday), 9 Chaffinch, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Goldcrest and a Blackbird. A couple of male Bramblings paused outside Brambles but other than that it was hard work. Later on, there were a few Chiffchaff and Goldcrest feeding on the ivy in lower Millcombe, with a couple of Blackcap, giving us hope for tomorrow!"
