As a weak ridge of high pressure begins to establish itself over southern Britain and the jet stream moves north I was expecting great things today. In the event it was pretty quiet and the birds had completely dried up by mid morning. Still managed to catch 45 new birds but that was well short of what I was expecting: 7 Blackcap, 1 Blue Tit, 4 Chiffchaff, 1 Dunnock, 1 Goldfinch, 10 Reed Warbler, 1 Robin, 13 Sedge Warbler, 2 Whitethroat, 3 Willow Warbler and 2 Wren.
