Another sunny day on the island, feeling spring like by this afternoon. Migration was in full swing with the arrival of at least another 10 wheatears with some sustained sing offs between rival males. Their song is one of the sounds of spring on Ramsey, explosive bursts of techno chatter!

Goldcrests and chiffchaffs moved through too and one of my favourite birds, the black redstart appeared at the bungalow, our second of the year. There seems to have been a bit of influx of this enigmatic chat into the UK today with at least 17 showing on Birguides including on our neighbouring Pembrokeshire Islands of Skomer and Skokholm
