Thursday 10th October 2019

After spending two wind-blown and wet weeks at Portland Bird Observatory, with more ringers than birds on those few days when the wind dropped, I was keen to get back to South Milton. In reality the wind today was borderline but the forecast for the rest of the week is even worse so I took a chance. If all the leaves I caught had been birds I would have been kept pretty busy but ended the morning with just 11 new birds: 3 Blackcap, 1 Cetti’s Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 3 Goldcrest, 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Robin and 1 Wren.
