Empty nets

This morning was the quietest morning for a good while. After yesterdays storm and rain just before and until a little after dawn I had expected maybe a few Robins in the garden. That didn't happen. Instead, we ringed 15 birds in the entire session. 4 Great Tit, 3 Blackbird, 3 Siskin, 3 Goldcrest and singles Blue Tit and Goldfinch. A Waxwing flicked around the garden but didn't get caught.

In the afternoon I took a couple of hours birding. Preben had told me he'd had a Serin but it didn't migrate. I picked it up just after 13:45; when it did migrate. The other highlights included Black-throated Diver (1), Twite 60+ also 2 SNOW BUNTINGS (1ST WINTER PAIR)
