A rare local record of a ‘fly-over’ Spoonbill here yesterday spotted by Matt Scragg.

Another fair fall of migrants ringed included Water Rail, Whinchat, Wheatear, Lesser Whitethroat, 8 Garden Warblers, 33 Sedge Warblers, 40 Whitethroats and 36 Sand Martins amongst a day ringing total of 306 birds. Foreign controls these last few days were a Spanish ringed Blackcap, UK Pied Flycatcher & Reed Warbler and a Dutch ringed Sand Martin.
