Sculthorpe Moor – 22nd August 2022 


 We obtained a session in today, ahead of some gusty, and also possibly damp climate, complied with by a go back to temperature levels in the high 20s. It was the very first time we had actually ringed right here on a south wind which might have added to the unique sensation that several summering warblers had actually pressed southwards on fall movement. Migrants like flying right into a headwind. It’s useful for producing lift when there are significant ranges to cover and also Norfolk birds have a tendency to head to the south coastline instead of heading eastern.

We refined an overall of 40 birds although fifty percent being Blue Tit was instead way too many for our preference. These birds do not have a tendency to take a trip a lot in the UK and also many researches can vouch for their survival prices and also elements affecting reproducing performance. Proceeded surveillance for adjustment in scenarios is still vital. 6 Chiffchaff and also 2 Sedge Warblers were the only summertime travelers recorded.
