22nd February 2011

A number of migrants on the ground today with a Fieldfare, 6 Redwings, 6 Song Thrushes and a Blackbird brought in by the south easterlies, but by far the most exciting from a Hilbre point of view were 2 Great Tits which were trapped and ringed (left). Other good records included 2 Collared Doves, 19 Wigeon at the north end and 3 Golden Plover down at Little Eye, with a supporting cast of a Greenfinch, 7 Starlings and 5 Skylarks.
The Brents are steady at 180, while waders seen included 12 Sanderling and 50 Ringed Plovers.
