    Note that the juvenile Common Terns reared on Conder Pool have got a red ring with a 3 digit number, so I’d be grateful for time and date of any that are recorded here or elsewhere. All records of birds reared at the pool are useful so that we have a better idea of when they leave. Common and Sandwich Terns ringed at Hodbarrow in Cumbria are already being seen on their way south.

    Thanks
