Ferrybridge 6th

A morning stroll from Ferrybridge down to Small Mouth, then across the road and up the Rodwell trail as far as the Castle Cove Yacht club. Proof, once more, that the more time you take the more you see.

Brent Goose – 2 dark bellied went E out of the harbour
Little Egret 1
Dunlin
Ringed Plover
Turnstone.
Sandwich Tern
1 juv
BH Gull, GBB Gull, Herring Gull,
Hobby 1 slow N over with something in its claws. A couple of Gulls mad a half-hearted attempt to mob it
Kestrel 1
Swallow – low tens. I didn't see any other hirundines this trip apart form lots of swallows
Wheatear 1 across the road by the centre.

Finally, the obligatory Med Gull sighting. A 2nd year flying around the harbour by Perry’s Restaurant.
