12th April 2012

The male Blackcap seen yesterday was trapped and ringed, but no further warblers arrived during the night. Twenty Eight Goldfinches were noted, now the commonest finch species that moves through Hilbre reflexing their increase in recent years all over the country. Two hundred Sanderling were off the west side of Middle, 12 Sandwich terns were logged with 4 Gannets and the Brent were counted at 100 birds , including 2 dark-bellied. Two Swallows and 8 white Wagtails were the best of the migrants. Ringed;- 2 Goldfinches, 1 Wren, 1 Blackcap.
