Friday 13th January 2017

The photos on this blog are getting as bad as another well known local blog but at least it proves the Glaucous Gull is still here. Bonxie also put in an appearance as did five auks one of which came close enough to be identified as a Guillemot. Other offshore movements almost non-existent but did include 2 Gadwal south. Signs of cold weather movement were a Skylark heading south and a new British race Song Thrush in the Helgoland trap that was pleasingly carrying plenty of fat that is presumably moving to milder conditions on the coast. Very few Song Thrush are wintering at Landguard this year & we have yet to get Greenfinch on the year list !

Ringing: 1 Song Thrush
