Between September 7th-9th I ringed 155 new birds at Buckton, including 7 Redstarts, 5 Pied Flycatcher, 5 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Tree Pipit, 3 Whinchat, 7 Garden Warbler, 12 Whitethroat, 40 Meadow Pipit, Wheatear, Stonechat and Wryneck ! The bottom image just about shows a rather skulky Barred Warbler on September 7th.
During the fall I spent most of this time in the company of Flamborough stalwart Mike Pearson see http://pelagicus.blogspot.com/ who was more excited than I have ever seen him for years ! More than once I heard him mutter 'just like the good old days'! Even Blyth was recruited as a junior field operative, as the groppers were at his height !
