A Stormie control.........returning to the Bay !!

A second "summering faithful " Storm Petrel was controlled on Sunday night - 27th July, this time near Aberystwyth by Tony Cross.
We ringed this bird on the 22nd July 2012 at our Mwnt site.....c36 miles to the south along the coast.

Site faithful summer visitors.........with no known breeding along the coast.....??  Or....??
Bardsey and the Pembs islands are the nearest known breeding sites.

We tried at a new site for us last night, Ceibwr, a site between Strumble Head and Mwnt - no birds caught or seen.
