Linnets again.

It was down to the beach again this morning (Friday 2nd.) as a stiff SW was putting paid to any netting.
Only 4 Linnet and the first Wheatear of the spring were seen the previous evening. 
The net was set and about 25 Linnet were flying around sitting on the wire's.Soon a few started going down to investigate the seed.

Linnets 'massing' on the wires !

12 new birds were evenutally ringed, with some of the males looking smart in their breeding plumage.

Both 5Males

One for the ladies.

4 Gannets were seen offshore and 2 Fulmar flew over the beach and investigated the seed !!
Apart from that it was pretty grim.
