An overcast morning with hardly any breeze, what little there was started from the east then swung round to west. Sunny spells from lunchtime onwards.
It was fairly quiet this morning at Middleton NR - like the weather.
Vis consisted of 9 Meadow Pipits, 9 Lesser Redpolls and 4 Woodpigeons (the latter heading high SSE for some reason).
Ringing from 0730-1130 comprised a few migrants and some residents:
Lesser Redpoll 6
Willow Warbler 2
Greenfinch 4 new birds and one retrap which had been ringed at Heysham NR as a juvenile on 8 Sept 2019
Cetti's Warbler - a retrap first ringed at Middleton NR as a juv on 1 July last year, and also caught in September.
