Though the forecast was for rain all day today we had a very still and rain free start that allowed 3 hours ringing during which we had 28 more new birds. It was the usual suspects with Willow Warbler, Reed and Sedge Warblers the most commonly occurring species. The Sedge Warblers (not a breeding bird here) that we have recorded both today and yesterday have been very heavy birds with a healthy fat and muscle score.

This evening 1 Whimbrel and 1 Snipe on Longis common and increase in Meadow Pipits in the same area.
