There was a little more vis than yesterday and also like yesterday it was all north except for the Swallows and Pink-footed Geese. We had (very approximately) 50 Chaffinch, 15 Meadow Pipits, Reed Bunting, 75 Greenfinch, 25 Collared Doves, 4 Grey Wagtails (we still haven't been able to catch and colour ring any of these for Heysham BO) Goldfinch, Linnet, 14 Tree Sparrows (mega!), 4 Swallows, 340 Pink-footed Geese and 80 Jackdaws (oh, these went south as well).
Other birds included 6 Mistle Thrushes, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Kestrel. No warblers ringed today, although a Whitethroat was in the 'middle' hedgerow. The forecast is looking okay for tomorrow so I'll give it a try again. There were a few arrivals of Redwings further east last night so I will be keeping my ears open tonight.
