Ringed Brent geese

A bit late getting to south shore this morning. By the time I reached Ocean Edge foreshore the tide had almost covered Red Nab, but there were still some pale-bellied Brent. The picture below shows eight birds, two of which have rings. By the time I reached Red Nab only the three regular birds remained. They then flew towards Pott's corner.

Hopefully the ringed birds will return tomorrow. Two hours before high water, or slightly earlier, should be best. If anyone reads the rings, please advise Pete of either ring details or the returned "life histories".

Also on Ocean Edge salt marsh:
Rock pipit 1
Skylark 2
Reed bunting 2
