September 2023

A very quiet month for birds and ringing on the headland with unfavourable south-westerly winds.

At this time in the autumn we start hoping for easterly winds to bring us migrants from Scandinavia and further east, but this sadly did not materialise.

We held 16 ringing sessions at 4 sites catching 280 birds of 27 species, of these 267 were newly ringed birds.

The highlights included 32 Meadow Pipit, 11 lesser Redpoll, 2 Swallow and a lone Garden Warbler.
