Sunday 9th July 2017

On the move heading south a handful of Black-headed Gulls & an Oyk. Also worth a mention is the odd Common Gull starting to reappear after being absent for the bulk of the summer. Apart from this its baby bird time with another dispersing juvenile Blackcap turning up (Blackcap has only nested here once ever a couple of years back).

Crassa unitella (top) doesn't get recorded here very often and it is always good to get Monopis monachella which is a scavenger in old birds nests and animal carcasses.

5 birds ringed: 2 Linnet, 1 Blackcap, 1 Wren, 1 Whitethroat.
