With today's big total we cruised past 1000 birds ringed for the year - spring hasn't even started yet!
Fieldfare and Brambling
Most of the birds were caught in the first couple of hours of the morning so while Marie and myself ringed I had to call Hans to come out and assist as we were swamped at the start but it all worked out in the end!
Not much else was seen really as we were far to busy to look at things and by the time we had a few moments to stand and look around thick fog had rolled in putting an end to any birding action although two awesome young White-tailed Eagles appeared out of the murk to circle the station mid-morning before melting away again into the fog!
Louis also attempted another migration watch from the tip in the morning notching up 9,200 Eiders before the fog rolled in, abruptly ending matters!
Here are two happy - and very busy - ringers: Simon and Marie in the lab.
