Too windy today so the normal Saturday ringing session canceled.

Decided to try the NOA site at Hempton Marsh in the hope the feeders would be sheltered from the wind. The light wasn't good but at least is was fairly calm. The birds were a bit hit and miss and there were long spells with nothing on the feeders. Highlights were single singing marsh and willow tits although neither ventured onto the feeders.

Good numbers of tits present. At least 11 long-tails, 10 great, 7 blue and a coal. 2 great spots, 2 jays and a load of chaffinch were also present. 40 goldfinches in the alders but no redpoll.

Photos with DSLR today.
