Main sighting: Curlews
Curlews again, folks – sorry! Big tide this morning covered all the foreshore Spartina, and pushed at least 350 Curlews on to Becs Lagoon. This must represent all the Curlews between St Brides and Goldcliff? Sadly, high water levels on Becs Lagoon meant that they were up to their bellies in water, so that ring reading was impossible, but Terry Winter later photographed one ring, Black Blue Blue, from the 2015/16 catch on the first lagoon.
Also one Greenshank, a Merlin chasing Medaow Pipits, and still ten Swallows.
