I spent most of the morning ringing at Sandwich Bay.Although over the past few weeks some good birds have turned up there,(Hoopoe,Little Bunting etc) common migrants remain in low numbers.The catch this morning consisted of Willow Warbler (1) Starling (3) Great Tit (1) Whitethroat (1)Blackcap (1) and Blackbird (2).

The Willow Warbler was interesting,being  a bird of the acredula type,(northern).The Whitethroat was a re trap  (six years old) and one of the Starlings was also a re trap (seven years old).
