Monday 12th May 2014

Weather; Cloudy with showers early, sunny later, wind NW Force 4.

Migrants continue to push through at the lighthouse in spite of the less than ideal wind direction. A total of 15 Wheatears were grounded mainly in the area of the paddocks along with a Whinchat, 3 White Wagtails and a Lesser Redpoll  (photo below) 3 Willow Warblers were also apparently new in. More arrivals appeared in the afternoon with 2 new Whinchats and a male Yellow Wagtail in the paddocks and 4 White Wagtails in the Lingham Lane area. Hirundines started moving east along the seawall also with around 50 Swallows, 6 House Martins and 4 Sand Martins. A single Siskin flew east

Observers; AMC, KD, EW  

This confiding Lesser Redpoll was bearing a ring on it's right leg (KD)
