Ringed Meds

** some late items entered for last three days, mainly insects
Heysham Obs
Red Nab/outfalls/Ocean Edge foreshore
Med Gull - 5 close together on Red Nab near high tide: 3 adult summer, one with metal ring on tarsus, the other with metal above knee (returning Czech-ringed bird?). 2 x 2CY
Whimbrel - 3
Common Sandpiper - 2

Dingy Footman new for the year (at northern edge of its current range)

A portable trap set in the wetland area produced a perhaps predictable ratio of 11 Southern Wainscot to one Smoky Wainscot (& 6 Drinker). The hut trap held 8 Smoky and no Southern Wainscot
