Still calm, hot and sunny but with a bit of haziness and a few wispy clouds coming and going through the day on the light easterly breeze; a similar morning of ringing to yesterday with 35 new birds caught including the first Thrush Nightingale of the year and the third Red-breasted Flycatcher of the spring.
   Other migrants trapped consisted of 5 Icterine Warblers, 7 Garden Warblers, 8 Whitethroats, just 5 Willow Warblers, 2 Chiffchaffs, a Blackcap and a Spotted Flycatcher.

Thrush Nightingale
There were 2 Hawfinches at Birkemose early afternoon where there was also another singing Thrush Nightingale while a singing Common Rosefinch was holding territory on the outskirts of town.

Soon be plenty of baby birds out and about

They'll have to be careful though as old Snog will be waiting!
