A clear night meant that we could both get some sleep. It also meant that by morning the vast majority of our migrants had continued on their journeys. Indeed we haven't even reached double figures of Willow Warbler this morning as we birded in strong wind and drizzle. But the Hoopoe remains, and this morning it is wearing a ring!

The third Hoopoe to be ringed on Bardsey! A white chin, cinnamon breast and extensive black flank streaking make this a female. (c) Richard Brown
