4th March 2010

A good early spring morning that started with a light south westerly but veered to the north east in the afternoon. Yet another Woodpigeon occured at the time it is most likely to be seen and 80 Lapwings flew north. A Common Snipe on Middle eye was supplemented by another flying high over the island in a northerly direction. A single Skylark went over but surprise of the day was a visiting male Reed Bunting that sat on the 'air-raid shelter' and proceeded to sing.
The Velvet Scoter reappeared again and was perhaps too distant when not seen on the last few visits.
Ringed:- 1 Blackbird
