Weather: SE force 4, cloudy, then SSE 6 later in the morning with heavy rain.
As a low pressure system moved across the country this morning a south easterly wind preceded it and 2 Greenland Wheatears were on Middle first thing. Three other Wheatears were on the main island but none were caught for ringing, indeed we have been very unlucky in that regard this spring.
The west side of the paddock was sheltered and a single Lesser Redpoll turned up there before the heavy rain started.
Ringed: 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Lesser Redpoll
