21st May

A much nicer day, thankfully without any fog! The Paddyfield Warbler was still at South Gravity, although it only showed for 10 seconds in the morning before vanishing for the rest of the day! A first-summer Glaucous Gull was new and there were now 7 Black-tailed Godwits present. The female Red-backed Shrike was still at Ancum and a Turtle Dove nearby was also an old bird, while an extremely fat Dunnock caught at Holland House and found to be wearing a Norwegian ring was presumably the marked bird seen five days ago.

After over a week of avoiding the Holland House mist-nets we finally managed to out-smart and catch a couple of the Tree Sparrows for ringing this morning!
