Wednesday 22nd June 2016

A dispersing juvenile Treecreeper is only the 16th Landguard record. Other dispersing juvs on site include 3 Coal Tit & a Skylark. Yet another female Blackcap with a brood patch turned up suggesting that several of it's kind are failing in their breeding attempts this year - this one is slightly more interesting in that it is wearing a ring put on by another ringer elsewhere. Also worth a mention is 6 Barnacle Geese going north plus a Grey Heron heading south which will also be a dispersing juv as heron's start nesting early in the year.

A couple of days ago this plant was published on the blog but as we are botanically inept and incompetent  it was misidentified. This blog has quite a lot of readers and it is of concern that only one person pointed out this schoolboy error. It is actually Erigeron glaucus that goes under several common names including "Seaside Daisy", a garden escape originating in Oregon & California.

5 birds ringed: 1 Great Tit, 1 Treecreeper, 1 Wood Pigeon, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Linnet
