8th October 2013

Weather:- W force 2/3, mild for October
Another search of the island pre-tide with little expectation now the westerlies are in full charge found few migrants of note. Two of the 3 Wheatears were ringed on previous days and obviously found it to there liking, as did the Goldcrest of yesterday, however a new Goldcrest was about also a Chiffchaff.
Passing through again were small numbers of Meadow Pipits, 4 Skylarks, a Grey Wagtail and a Starling. Four Wigeon flew about the shore where 43 Bar-tailed Godwits fed, but only 8 Brent could be seen this morning.
Ringed:- 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Goldcrest, 1 Wren.                 [ 634-32 ]
