Newport Thurs am

 An impressive 15 Shelducks on the Long Street mud. Single Greenshank & Grey Plover.

Redshank Black 82, ringed at the Gann last Dec, has been at Newport since mid January.

Great Black Back Green B:160 was ringed as a nestling on Bardsey in 2019. By Oct that year it was on Skomer & at the Gann. In Feb 2020 it was spotted in Brittany, before returning to Pembs in October (the Gann & Newport) then Newport again today. "One of the most recorded and well travelled birds from the gull ringing project on Bardsey" to quote Steve Stansfield, the Warden.
