19 at red nab and nearby shore this am on the neap high tide. Need someone to help ring read - at least two around and the red darvic this am would have been so easy for me to read even five years ago :-(

One juv, 6 2cy, 3 3cy and 16 adult this morning with the adults all sat close together on the mudflats by ocean edge salt marsh. The birder who scoped red nab and the outfalls then went please take note that on neap tides the main med roost is as described. Couldn't find yesterday's red ringed bird but an adult with a pale right leg darvic and metal below on left leg was present - just looked a bit 'dirty' to be a white darvic

Real cutting edge stuff to see how many meds in this pic with the 200kb limit (hint - all ages on here)

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
