July 31st (Sandwich Bay)

I spent the morning and early afternoon ringing,due to a moderate SW wind all the nets were set in the Whitehouse bushes where they are more protected.There was another fall of Willow Warblers although it was smaller than the one that occurred earlier in the week.Apart from Willow Warblers we also trapped two Garden Warbler,one Blackcap,several Tits and one Blackbird.Unfortunately the Wood Warbler that had been in the area for the past few days had appeared to have moved on. The falls of Willlow Warblers at Sandwich are probably the best for many years and hopefully show signs of an upward trend (there was another fall of 100 on August 1st).
I looked in on scrape before I left for home and saw - Dunlin 1,Shoveler 8,Teal 3 and Little Grebe 2.

During the afternoon Jeanette and I had a walk along the Downs at Upper Halling where we saw one Peregrine.
