6th September 2014

Weather: WNW force 3

Much less movement than yesterday as would be expected with the change of wind direction although the small Robin passage over the last week continued. Four Wheatears were present although only a single was caught for ringing, likewise a single Goldcrest was ringed with one of yesterday's birds still on the island.  A Merlin was new today and a Peregrine was also logged.

Turnstones living up to their name

The RSPB 'tea and cakes' event enjoyed good weather if not many birds to see.
Ringed: 1 Wheatear, 1 Robin, 1 Dunnock, 1 Goldcrest.                              [713-34 ]
