Canadian-ringed Brents

Thanks to Colin for informing us that this pair were likely to be those which had wintered on Walney for the last few years and were first ringed at:

Therefore we just double-checked the ringing details this morning and they matched these two birds

The Walney birds disperse as the Eel grass runs out in late winter and some have started to cross the Bay and feed on Gutweed

A new high of 17 Pale-bellied Brent Geese this morning

Kittiwake - 16 in, then landed on sea
