Thurlestone Bay

The Great White Egret showed well for most of the day if at times it was on the back of the marsh.

Waders on the beaches were - 16 Whimbrel, 7 Turnstone, 6 Sanderling, 1 Bar Tailed Godwit, 1 Ringed Plover.1 Knot

Vic T and Eric W found one of the Sanderling had  rings and flag - lft leg- Red flag over Green, rt leg - Green/ Yellow.
They also had a Grey Plover and 30 Common Scoter

Whilst Bob B was collecting the car park fees he had a Turtle Dove flyover ( 1st of the year ).

We had a colour ringed sanderling last year - since when I have lost all my old e-mails- I think it was maurice @ Barnstable who gave me the web address to write to ( Holland from memory ) Would appreciate any info for this site .
