Back to Clouds hill for another autumn

It’s been quite a busy day and it’s not even 4 o’clock yet! This morning I have my first proper session at Clouds Hill where the ringing gods (whoever they are) eased me in gently. 32 birds caught, most of which were migrants though several Dunnocks made it onto the list which is probably a sign of things to come.  A Lesser Whitethroat was first out of the net.

Followed by several Whitethroats along with Blackcaps and Willow Warblers.

I then had to pop into work for a couple of hours but on returning home took a call about this amazing thing on Portland!

I’ve been wanting to see one of these for ages so glad it stuck around long enough for me to get there.
Lastly, I took the opportunity to get a few more picture of last nights weird Wagtail prior to release this morning. Interesting looking thing.

Almost certainly a Blue-headed Wagtail but my mind started exploring other more exotic wagtails, especially when compared with this other probably Blue-headed Wagtail also caught last night.

These birds are a bit of a mystery to me!
