Twite mystery

Heysham Obs
A Twite was seen this morning with a dark green (presumed) site ring above another palish ring but the views were ever so brief before they were flushed by activity in the centrica yard

North harbour wall
106 birds on the seed of which 104 were ringed:
Twite - 101, 2 unringed, the above bird and the usual Machrihanish-ringed bird (the 67 end of the ring was read)
Linnet -3 ringed
Goldfinch - 2 ringed

No obvious sign of any Meds
