The day dawned bright and clear with a ground frost and a slight easterly breeze. As the morning progressed the wind picked up from the southeast and cloud cover developed from the southeast so by 0830 we had complete cloud cover.
Even though it seemed a better day for vis than yesterday it wasn't. We had the following, all moving north; Linnet, 120 Pink-footed Geese, 12 Sisikins, 2 Chaffinch, Meadow Pipit (plus 18 off passage), Greenfinch and 2 Mistle Thrush. We had 4 Mute Swans go over, heading south, but they were obviously local birds.
We processed 7 new birds (recaptures in brackets):
Greenfinch - 3 (1)
Dunnock - 2
Blue Tit - 1
Great Tit - 1
That will probably be it until next weekend, when hopefully I will be reporting my first Wheatears!
