Chiffs, Chaffs, and very long bills......!!

Apologies for the late posting,.....A Western Bonelli's in the county caused a delay to the admin for Wendy and I..!!

Saturday at the CES site;-
8 new Chiffs & 35 new Chaffs, along with new Great Tits and Song Thrushes seemed to mirror coastal passage through the county and islands...
(74 new 18 retraps)

Sunday, a TRG first !! and very pleasing, two of our other migration hotspots, were ringed simultaneously. Little to report from these hotspots though today....
So off !! Wendy, Dyfed, Karen and I go......
Off to Kidwelly and further depths of Carmarthenshire.
Long-billed Dowitcher, Glossy Ibis, Spotted Redshank, and 4 Curlew Sandpipers by rotating our 'scopes....from Kidwelly Quay wall.

Back to ringing in the morning.
