We had some 'vis' this morning and though there weren't huge numbers of birds it was typical for early Spring. On the move were 92 Meadow Pipits, 6 Linnets, 4 Grey Wagtails, 24 Alba Wags, 5 Curlews, 8 Goldfinch, 20 Siskin, Raven, 3 Skylarks, Sparrowhawk, Chaffinch and Reed Bunting.
We ringed 15 birds as follows (recaptures in brackets):
Meadow Pipit - 7
Dunnock - 2
Linnet - 4
Greenfinch - 2
Blackbird - (1)
The forecast is looking okay for the next few days, but due to work commitments it will be Tuesday before I can get back to the 'obs' again.
Back home I checked my moth trap and I had my first moth for 2012 in the form of a Common Quaker.
