A few bits today but perhaps surprisingly no Kittiwake flocks

Gannet - three out
Common Scoter - pair out
Kittiwake - two ad and two 2Cy inshore around outfalls/harbour
Pale bellied Brent - simple today - the three long stayers feeding close inshore by play area, 22 feeding along waters edge on detached weed in the tide.  All of them later on Red Nab including all three ringed birds

The yellow ringed one was ringed in Iceland in 2008 and has been returning to the Walney area for many winters.  It has lost a darvic ring off the right leg, hence confusion but the ‘T’ on the yellow ring was read yesterday (thanks Colin and Malcolm)
