Migrants are in the air.
Well back to the ringing numbers havent been great the last week but there are signs it is starting to take off here with the number of species present begining to rise rapidly. We have caught the first blackcaps, savi's, masked shrike, both nightingales, and a first ever for the station a Cettis warbler. Also what i believe is a juvenile Pied flycatcher. I have not got a lot of experience with this bird ( insert nought there, so would be grateful for any comments).
