Weekend Watchers.

The day today, went to the 'Weekend Watcher(s)', Louis Hansen is particularly worth mentioning. Countless hours spent thanklessly counting migration, hard work for most; not Louis though. Today, last that I heard, they had seen Golden Oriole, Long-tailed Skua and probably a distant Two-barred Crossbill. Here in the garden, nada. Not a sign of any of those birds, though we tried to 'connect' the the latter two thanks to a speedy alert from Louis.

Although bird(s) of the day were seen by others, we still had a good day ringing with 86 new birds and many recaptures from recent days.
