1st May 2016

Weather SE force 3
A touch of south easterly this morning produced a few migrants at last with 4 Willow Warblers, 1 Chiffchaff, 4 Wheatears, a Blackcap (very late this spring), 2 White Wagtails and a passing Tree Pipit. Also logged were 6 Goldfinches, and a Siskin. Best birds today were a male and 2 female Goosanders, which are still scarce birds at Hilbre although perhaps becoming less so in recent years. Five Little Egrets were present on the shore.
Ringed : 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap, 1 Goldfinch.
