Back on the patch

The highlight of this morning's ringing and vis-migging at Uskmouth was an Osprey, briefly perched on a pylon at 09:55, it was rapidly dislodged by a Magpie and dropped out of view. More raptor interest was provided by a Hen Harrier being chased eastwards by half a dozen Carrion Crows and a male Peregrine drifting overhead. Whilst there was little in the way of excitement in the nets, westward passage included: 32 Skylark, 4 Swallow, 60 Meadow Pipit, 10 alba wagtails, 6 Grey Wagtail, 56 Chaffinch, 14 Redpoll and 41 Siskin.
