As the fog began to clear there was some visible migration, although not a great deal as the bay was still 'locked down' with murk, but I did manage to reord four Alba Wags, 15 Meadow Pipits, two Grey Wagtails, eleven Swallows and five Greenfinches all heading south.
There were only a few grounded birds and these were three Whitethroats and a single Willow Warbler. Raptors were represented this morning by a male Sparrowhawk and two Kestrels.
The ringing was slow this morning, as was expected with the weather conditions, and I ringed nine birds as follows:
Dunnock - 1
Whitethroat - 1
Meadow Pipit - 1
Goldfinch - 1
Great Tit - 1
Greenfinch - 4
The forecast is looking interesting over weekend and in to next week, particualrly for east coast birders. However, the easterlies do look quite prolonged so there's a good chance it'll bring some birds over here to the west.
