Rain at dawn and continued NE winds meant hopes were high for a moderate catch, although numbers caught recently at Spurn (444) and Gib Point (314) are shear dreams for us. Catching started off well with redwings and a single song thrush. Blackcaps arrived in number today as well as more goldcrests. Surprise of the day came when a goldcrest bearing a ring inscribed with "RKS Museum Stockholm".
Ringing totals = 75 birds of 11 species.
redwing (20), blackbird (13), blackcap (11), wren (5), great tit (3), robin (3), chiffchaff (2) and singles of song thrush, greenfinch and brambling.
