Late morning after the thunderstorm had gone through, a juvenile Med Gull appeared on the spit. This is the third sighting following last Tuesday and last Thursday evening - possibly the same bird, but could just as easily be 3 different ones.
Otherwise, the usual pair of Oycs and a fly through Hobby were the only birds of note.
I made a second visit early afternoon just before school pick and found 2 juvenile Med Gulls amongst the throng of several hundred BHG, so that confirms that at least 2 birds have been involved in recent sightings. Bird 2 below looks to have a bigger bill.
CR BHG were well represented:
white EEM3 again - probably Dutch, but still no response from the ringer
black R34A again - regular French bird
black A2N0 - another returning bird seen last year. This one was ringed in Germany and was first seen again this year on Sunday
white 25J3 - I think this is local bird and await details
white 507 - not seen today, but seen last Friday, was yet another returning bird seen last year. This one was ringed in Copenhagen, Denmark
Amazing site fidelity when you consider where they have come from!
