      36 Whimbrel (and 1 Curlew) in a field at Shippon Hill, Langthwaite Road, between Lancaster and Quernmore at 1.30 pm. The flock included a colour-ringed bird – almost certainly from a Mid-Wales ringing scheme.

          5 Whimbrel still this afternoon around 4pm in usual field off Little Fell Lane, including the same CR bird Pete C had the other day, green on left, yellow on right (Pete’s still waiting to hear back from the Welsh group that ringed it). Looks like some of them have moved on (correlating with some nocmig records I’ve had in the last couple of days).

            The colour-ringed Whimbrel I saw at Shippon Hill, Langthwaite Road on 2/5/24 was ringed at Llansantffraid, Llanon, Ceredigion on 1/5/21.
