Migration in action today with 700+ House Martin pouring west along the Dune Ridge this morning with many others missed and just two Swallow noted. There was no sign of the Wryneck but a Whinchat was a new arrival on Warren Point.
In the estuary an Osprey again limited the high tide roost but counts included 680 Wigeon, 34 Ringed and 15 Grey Plover, 20 Turnstone, 10 Sandwich Tern, five Greenshank, two Shelduck, two Mediterranean Gull, two Knot and just the second Ruff of the year.
Ringing News: Today's Osprey was also sporting a blue colour ring, but unlike Tuesday's bird it was on the right leg. Photos revealed it to be Blue 442, a female ringed at Nest 4 in the Kielder Forest, Northumberland on 7th July 2022 and was previously seen in Lincolnshire. The first Osprey recovery from the Warren.
