Thurlestone Bay

Waders on the beach / marsh this am - 10 Ringed Plover, 1 Turnstone, 1 Green Sandpiper, 2 Wheatear in the field behind the cafe

The ringing team really took the accolades today, after a night with some moon the warblers made for T Marsh & S M Ley totals were:-

Sedge 142 ( + 2 Controls - one English & 1 French ) , Reed 20, Whitethroat 7, Willow 25, Chiffchaff 11, Groppa 1., Blackcap 1 And a first for the year a Lesser Whitethroat. The Sedge total is a new site daily record.

Just shows the value of having a ringing team , if I had walked both sites this am my total of Sedge would have been less than 10 and I would have come away well pleased !
