Thursday 26th January

The two juvenile Spoonbill made a return visit over the morning tide with 20 Sanderling, three Avocet and a Black-tailed Godwit also noted along with over 50 different colour-ringed birds. The Sandwich Tern was flying strongly in the morning, but it was later found on the beach being attacked by gulls and despite being taken into care, may have met its end.

Elsewhere the first Buzzard of the year was over the Entrance Bushes, 20 Great Crested Grebe were offshore an a male and two female Shoveler were on the Main Pond.

Ringing News: The two Oystercatcher above, JP & KN, have spent much of the winter feeding in Greenland Lake. Ringed here in Oct 2021 there is still much to learn from these birds. 

Wildlife News: Three Grey Seal were again hauled out on the barge this afternoon.
