In the estuary an increase to 19 Mediterranean Gull (11 ad, two 2s, five 1s and the first juvenile), also present 12 Sandwich Tern and six Little Egret. Elsewhere 11 Manx Shearwater were offshore and four Swift and two Peregrine were overhead.
Wildlife News: Marbled White and Ringlet were the pick of the few insects on the wing in overcast and breezy conditions.
Ringing News: A Dunlin ringed here on 8 Oct 2021 and still present on 1 Nov 2021 has been resighted in northern Iceland. A schizni race, which should have been wintering in West Africa. A late migrant, as it was not seen subsequently on site.
It always brings a smile to my face when #DCWRG get another abroad resighting. Dunlin CH was ringed as a juvenile in October 2021 and recently resighted in Northern Iceland by Joana Micael. Thanks @icelandwader for passing on the sighting #ringing #ornithology @_BTO 1/3 pic.twitter.com/OaZxo8W1Pd— Ryan Burrell (@RyanABurrell) June 15, 2022
