17th April 2015

Weather:  SE 3-4, blustery and cold at times, 7/8 cloud, good vis

The first round of the morning just after 6am produced a small fall of phylloscs with 10 birds caught mainly Willow Warblers but including a male Redstart and a male Blackcap.

The small fall continued until around 9am at which time it disappointingly petered out but by the end of the day 26 birds had been caught the majority Willow Warblers.

Some small overhead passage was noted including a couple of Siskin, 2 Tree Pipits and a few wagtails and Goldfinches that included some that alighted in the blackthorn and a couple were caught and ringed.

A pair of Eider passed up the West Side and flew North and were closely followed by a second drake and 7 Canada Geese were noted.
