April 10th

Persistent strong Easterly gales put pay to the any ringing at the established sites but at the more sheltered Mannez Quarry a few migrants were ringed and a Grasshopper Warbler was once again reeling.

The LRP was still at the north end of Longis beach at first light and there were several phylloscs hugging the shoreline cover. A smart Water Pipit was at the Essex farm end of Longis Bay near the sewage works. Increased numbers of White and Pied Wagtails were evident and there was a 30 strong flock of Linnet in the pig pens. A couple of Swallow through today and 3 Wheatear were the other migrants recorded. Dartford Warbler was heard singing this morning at one of the recognised local breeding sites.

    Good to see Mannez Quarry in use as a ringing site
