14th May 2010

With the wind remaining in the south the only excuse today was the rain - it had started before dawn and it continued on and off (but mainly the former) for most of the morning.

However, it was obvious that a few Willow Warblers had been 'downed' by the drizzle and when the rain eventually stopped a couple were ringed and then observers got a brief glimpse of a red tail which later proved to be a nice first summer male Redstart which was trapped in the SK (see below).

Later the Peregrine appeared on the reef and up to 5 Little Egrets were in the gutter below the Obs garden.
