    Thanks for the Avocet record John – 6V was ringed as a chick at Conder Green on 1/6/21, was at Leighton Moss on 14/7/21, then was photographed at Alkborough in north Lincolnshire on 31/7/21 and again on 13/8/21 and 18/8/21, and is now back – rather surprisingly. It was reported by someone else on 26th but it is useful to get a second observer to provide corroborative evidence, so thanks for posting.

    Do you have an approximate time for your sighting please?

    In EM Hide 8.30 to 9.15, probably noticed rings about 9.00. Noted 18 avocets in total.
