Smaller numbers of Willow Warblers were again present on the site today with a further nine trapped and ringed. A new species from a ringing perspective was added to the Observatory list, Yellow Wagtail, which was a surprise find in the Meadow Pipit nets on the east bank along side a Pied Wagtail an usual species in itself. Green Sandpiper and Greenshank were again on the Broadwater, Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker in the pines, and up to three Arctic Skuas chasing Terns over the sea.
