morning was a bit more chilly and much more windy. The wind was North to North East
once more. The first round brought more or less 10 birds, one of them being the first
bluethroat of the year! Then, it was quiet for the rest of the morning. 18 willow warblers,
1 lesser whitethroat, 2 redstarts, 1 redpoll, and the bluethroat made me reached 23 new
birds ringed today.

Even thought it’s not a lot, it is enough to overcome last year total for the season! We
have now ringed 1760 birds this spring against 1750 last year!

Some rain is predicted for the night and the early morning. These might be good conditions
for ringing tomorrow. Let’s wait and see…
