13th May 2010

This Spring on the island is certainly confusing the weather analysts amongst us... a light south-easterly, with some slight mist (albeit with relatively clear skies) resulted in very few grounded migrants indeed.

However, observers struggled on and four birds were trapped and ringed (3 Linnets and a Willow Warbler) and there were a couple of interesting retraps including a male Chiffchaff that seems to have made the island its territory.

A Wheatear appeared on cue as the tide rose and the day warmed up for a change.
