The last few days have seen movements of Pied Wagtails and increasing numbers of Meadow Pipits. Species returning to breed have included Shelduck and Lesser black backed Gulls. Locally scarce visitors have been Jack Snipe, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Common Gull.
Image here from this week is of our first colour ringed Lesser black backed Gull to return to Alderney this spring (4FJ6 originally ringed as a chick on Burhou island by the ABO team in 2017)
