Common Scoter

An enjoyable few days recently wit ha stop over on Hilbre Friday night and an early morning on Saturday. Not many migrants around but we did ring  another new Goldcrest. Common Scoter seem to be hanging around the island in small numbers and give some pretty good views from the Obs garden!

Surely it won't be long until something rarer is found with them.

The local Siskin invasion is continuing with over 100 birds now ringed since they first appeared in early January. Another good garden bird was a Treecreeper that turned up Sunday morning for a few seconds - by the time I'd grabbed the camera it had gone.
