Thats why they call it Easter

The wind had dropped a little and it had clouded over (with a few drops of rain) making it good mist-netting conditions in the morning; the wind however was still in the East which - opposite to my UK East Coast / Northern Isles birding instinct, is not a good direction here in the spring.   As a result only 10 new birds were ringed including 2 Chiffchaffs and a Willow Warbler.
   Another Hawfinch dropped in mid-morning and lingered the rest of the day and another Black Kite drifted over the station at lunchtime.

Managed to find a bit of migrant action in the afternoon with a walk round Kroghage where there were two, possibly three singing Lesser Whitethroats - the first of the year (with another singing in scrub near the harbour) 5 Blackcaps and the male Ring Ouzel still.
