The breeze shifted round today, from east through south and ending up WSW. Mainly sunny.
Three Grey Wagtails seen this morning and of these only one was caught.
Other passerine passage must have been very high in the clear conditions apart from a few Meadow Pipits that came down to the lure and seven Swallows that flew southwards across the reserve.
19 Pink footed Geese flew south well to east of Middleton.

Meadow Pipit - 4

Wren - 1 +1 retrap
Robin - 1 retrap
Chiffchaff - 4 + 2 retrap
Blue Tit - 1
