Sadly it seems most of the Lesser Redpolls have moved on, there were however a few Redwing and Song Thrush going over.
'Continental' Song Thrush (3)
A bit of a mixed bag in ringing terms with the Warbler numbers dwindling now, but still Meadow Pipits on the move in the dunes.
40 new birds were ringed and 5 retraps, the highlight being a Yellow-browed Warbler, the first since 2007. Among the retraps was a Chiffchaff that was originally ringed in the Spring on 23rd April 2011, where has this been hiding all this time ?
