With waders starting to move, a high tide look at the estuary this morning was calling so we took some spring traps down to Patch for a change.
This was earlier than our first attempt last year when our maximum catches were in October. It was well worthwhile though - 12 Rock Pipits ringed. With only 8 traps, a six bird round just 10 minutes after the previous round was a good result.
No rarities amongst the waders but the Turnstones and Sanderling on the spit make a dazzling attempt tonight look appealing.
