20th October 2019

Weather: NE force 2/3
Not too many migrants on the ground in the north easterly breeze, 3 Goldcrests were ringed, but the star bird of the day, a Long-tailed Tit, was the first ringed here this year.

As can be seen from the above picture it is still finishing its moult. 
Little Egrets and Brent fed together in the east side gutter.
Three Meadow Pipits were caught in the potter traps which were deployed with the hope of ringing the 2 Rock Pipits that were present.
Ringed: 3 Meadow Pipits, 3 Goldcrests, 1 Long-tailed tit      [ 746-36 ]
