11th March 2011

After the strong westerlies over the last couple of days it was no surprise that 86 Little Gulls were identified on the sea, hopefully the forerunner of a large passage in the next few weeks.
Four Long-tailed Tits made it to the island and were trapped and ringed, the second visitation this year by this scarce Hilbre species. Two Skylarks, a Pied Wagtail and a Woodpigeon were logged together with a Rock Pipit.
