Looking for spring migrants at Low Moor Banks

Spring migration is slowly getting underway despite the winds coming from the less favourable northerly quarter instead of a southerly airflow.

However, today I thought I would see what migrants were at Low Moor Bank ( old Low Moor tip opposite Dealburn Road, Low Moor) . When I arrived I could hear a distant Chiffchaff singing at the very top of the sight which was a good sign. I then found a further 3 singing males at various point around the site. Sadly I did not find or hear any Willow Warblers hopefully they are still on route. There were also two individual male Blackcaps in full song trying to attract passing females.

In total I found 18 different species ( including above ) and all records/numbers have been uploaded onto my Low Moor Banks database.
