Juv Black-headed Gull on its 'jack jones' not sure how to behave away from mum & dad.

On the move southbound 20 Sand Martin, 14 Swallow, 14 Swift, 10 Common Tern, 10 Oyk, 5 Black-headed Gull, 3 Curlew, 2 Common Gull, 2 Med Gull, Sandwich Tern & Shelduck. Grounded migrants were 2 Yellow Wagtail although it is highly likely that some transient Lesser Whitethroat & Whitethroat may be starting to pass through.

Lamoria zelleri continues the run of nationally scarce species featured on the blog with Landguard a known site for it over many years. Rather confusingly it has had three name changes in recent years as taxonomists try and work out exactly where it belongs in the scientific nomenclature side of things.

Ringing: 2 Linnet, 1 Blackbird, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Greenfinch, 1 Robin, 1 Whitethroat.
