Monday 25th July 2016


A breezy start with plenty of sunshine, clouding over into the afternoon. Still rather quiet.

Birds on the move involved 38 Sand Martin, 30 Swift and 1 Swallow heading South. Also of note -  1 Blackcap and 18 Sanderling, 1 Dunlin and 1 Oystercatcher.

This foreign ringed Dunlin on the beach was probably done in one of the Baltic states but it is not possible to read the ring combination, (above).


Common Darter out in small numbers at present on the nature reserve and in the observatory.

Ringing: 1 bird ringed this morning in the form of 1 Linnet.
