12th April 2015

Weather:  SSW 4 8/8 cloud, rain late morning

Surprising amount of south in the wind this morning produced a single Willow Warbler (which was caught and ringed) along with a couple of Goldfinches.

The surprise of the morning was a flighty male Ring Ouzel; presumably a different bird to any on Friday and continuing an excellent spring for this species at Hilbre (and elsewhere the UK).

A single Woodpigeon and White Wagtail were noted and 20 Pale-bellied Brents are hanging on.

The blustery start to the day with rain late morning gave way to a stunning evening on the islands.
