26th April

The weather was as yesterday but the wind dropping as the afternoon progressed and coverage was about 35% excluding netting hours.
A reduced number of migrants was clear from the off and many of yesterdays birds remained including the Hawfinch and Siskin at Holland and presumably the 2 Lesser Redpolls trapped there. Notable new discoveries were thin on the ground but did include a Blue-headed Wagtail in the observatory Fields and the first Jack Snipe for some time. Other totals were 2 Tree Pipits, a Dunnock, 11 Robins, 3 Redstarts, 4 Ring Ouzels, 7 Song Thrushes, 2 Redwings, 10 Blackcaps, 12 Chiffchaffs, 5 Willow Warblers, a Pied Flycatcher, 2 Lesser Redpolls and 9 Bramblings.
