Friday 15th July

A quick visit over the evening tide saw counts of 336 Curlew, 93+ Sandwich Tern, 25 Mediterranean Gull in the Bight (15 ad, two sw, two fw, six juv), six Sanderling, four Bar-tailed Godwit, three Whimbrel, a Dunlin, a Ringed Plover, a Greenshank and a summer plumaged Knot.

Ringing News: A metal ringed Common Gull was a returning bird ringed as a pullus in Holland in 2008. It was recorded here in July 2011, 2013 & 2015, the recent lack of records is probably due to the fact it has lost a Darvic ring. 

Sandwich Tern Red KJB was also present this evening, another bird showing great site fidelity to the Warren. This was ringed as a juvenile at a high tide roost at Ynyslas, Ceredigion in August 2018 and was present here in Aug 2018, Sep 2019 & Jul-Sep 2020.
