17th April 2014

Weather:- SW force 2, later in the morning WNW force 6, slight mist
Migration was naturally diminished today with no east in the wind but still 8 Willow Warblers and 2 Chiffchaffs drifted through by the end of the day, and 5 Wheatears dropped in suddenly mid-morning when the wind increased and veered west but they soon passed onward. The only Redpoll recorded was the one that was trapped and there were singles only of Swallow and Sand Martin, and just 3 White Wagtails.
Ringed:- 7 Willow Warblers, 2 Chiffchaffs, 1 Lesser Redpoll, 1 Linnet          [ 226-23 ]
