A very quiet day today for George at the Observatory which must of felt more like July than August with bright sunshine and breezy conditions making catching nearly impossible. There were just 7 birds processed, although they were all New birds.
The catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (1/0) Dunnock, (1/0) Whitethroat and (5/0) Willow Warbler.
Perhaps the Willow Warblers that we have come to expect around the second week in August are about to arrive in big numbers? we just need a couple of days easterlies to bring them in.
