1st June 2019

Weather: no discernable wind early, ESE force 2 later on. warm and overcast.

Two Dunlin in summer plumage seemed to be the only migrants this morning.

The main interest were the breeding birds. The Pied Wagtails have now fledged. One of the male Linnets trapped was first ringed in 2015, it was a male but unusually had little or no red plumage showing.

Five juvenile Linnets were also ringed this morning, also an adult female Robin with a brood patch, which seems to indicate that once again they have been breeding secretly.

The Airbus transport ship came in to Mostyn and was the most impressive sight on the sea as only a few terns, several Cormorants and a Common Scoter were seen today.
 Ringed: 5 Linnets, 1 Robin       [ 549-30 ]
