At first light flyover migrants included Redshank, Turtle Dove and Yellow Wagtail. The ringing again produced bird of the day with a Nightingale at Longis, Alderney has precious few records of this species historically and it is likely that our ringing research is now providing the first realistic picture of the their numbers passing through Alderney on migration.
4 Tree Pipits, 3 Redstarts, 2 Garden Warblers and a Pied Flycatcher were also ringed this morning.
