A Green Sandpiper the best on the marsh this evening. A look at Patch in the rain found 1 Sanderling, 6 Dunlin, 1 Turnstone, and 14 Ringed Plover.

 Spotted Flycather, Lesser Whitethroat and Lesser Redpoll were notable birds this morning along with double figures of Blackcap and Chiffchaff, caught during our final Constant Effort Site ringing session of 2015.  See "CES 12 ends with variety" for more ....

Yesterday, due to high tides, I ended up taking one of our trips from St. Dogmael's Quay, a close inspection of the roosting herons found 8 Little Egrets.
