North Harbour Wall

Ringed Twite

A short visit to the North Harbour Wall saw about 30 finches on the seed, mainly Linnets but with 8/9 Goldfinches.

Although no Twite were with them, some could be heard nearby, and they came down to the seed shortly after, as a small group of 9/10 with a few Linnets. They were not down for long, being disturbed by activity within the harbour. At least four were ringed with two Machrihanish birds and two Heysham, including one recent one.
