A Paddyfield Warbler was trapped and ringed on Hilbre late morning (see below). A first record for Hilbre as well as Cheshire and Wirrral.
Unfortunately, after release into the area it was caught it has not been seen subsequently.
When we have all recovered from the shock more photos and detail will follow. There were no other grounded migrants today...
Recovered slightly now - here are a couple more photos... an amazing find by Obs regular John Elliott.
