CR Med

July 5th - during an hour in the late morning a nice adult summer Med Gull arrived on the spit, but unfortunately only stayed for about 15 minutes before flying off.  It had a white colour ring code 3H47 on its left leg.  I have emailed the scheme, but in the meantime found the following link which gives details of the bird up to July 2013:

Also present in the reduced flock of LWHG were 2 Yellow-legged Gulls, the regular adult and a 1st summer bird in active moult:

2 Common Sands, an Oystercatcher and a Little Ringed Plover were the sum of the waders present and a single male Pochard the only slightly unusual duck.

Yesterday evening, 6 Little Ringed Plovers, all adults, were on the spit but quite flighty and as they weren't here today, were obviously on the move.
