Friday 12th July

A large increase in terns overnight with 53 Sandwich Tern including 18 juveniles and six Common Tern including the first two juveniles. Also in the estuary 166 Oystercatcher, six Mediterranean Gull, four Dunlin and three Whimbrel.

Ringing News: The Sandwich Tern KDB was a new arrival today. It was ringed in mid Wales in September 2015 and has been present here during the last four July/ August periods, showing great site fidelity. A large percentage of ringed Sandwich Terns are recorded here in multiple years, reinforcing the importance of the Warren as a post breeding stopover site
