Early morning vis mig

Heysham Obs
As usual, didn't get here quite early enough this morning to completely monitor a decent vis mig corridor before the weather came in from the west and wind increased

Probably getting on for 100 Lesser Redpoll over since I arrived at the late hour of 0545hrs along with a really decent count for here of 9 Tree Pipit with the first three as soon as I arrived

Managed to belatedly retrieve the situation ringing-wise a little with 20 Lesser Redpoll including the second bird ringed elsewhere this spring from the same ring string Y794701-800. 

A late flock of Pink-footed Geese headed north as is often the case in early May

More later...but the weather is deteriorating into mediocrity

This late Snipe was photographed by Janet this afternoon
