Wednesday 12th July 2017

Rain first thing, then brisk winds kept bird activity to a minimum. With only 1 Sand Martin lingering with the resident pair of Swallows, and 1 first summer and about 6 adult Med gulls floating about the river mouth, that was about it, although it is good to see that at least 1 pair of Greenfinch has bred successfully locally, (a rare thing these days).
The familiar larva of the Cinnabar moth, that are now starting to emerge and feed up on the Ragwort around the reserve, (well something needs to).

4 Birds ringed: 4 House Sparrow.
