The breeze started SE drifted as far as SW by mid afternoon before settling back to south. Mainly overcast but the sunny spells were very warm.
Only 16 new birds today.
Grey Wagtail 5
Meadow Pipit 3
Reed Bunting 1
and 2 Blue Tit recent retraps
Vis was equally low key:
Grey Wagtail 11 (includes the ringed birds)
Meadow Pipit 16 (includes the ringed birds)
Pied Wagtail 1
Pink-footed Goose 3
The surprise was the flocks of Starlings moving through, all heading south. A total of 171 was counted in an hour when the ringing was quiet enough to allow me to monitor vis properly.
