Sometimes details of birds ringed elsewhere take a while to come through. News this week of a Sand Martin re-encountered by Arfon 4 years ago!

The Mediterranean Gull and Sandwich Tern colour-ring reading season has arrived. 
This 2nd year bird was photographed by Hannah on the 9th July at The Webley, Teifi Estuary.

R8UN was ringed as a pullus  25/06/2022 at Polder de Sebastopol; Barbâtre; Vendée; Pays de la Loire; France. Hannah's sighting was the first since ringing.

The Webley sand banks are the classic spot on the Teifi to enjoy looking through the Gulls, Terns and Waders for colour - ringed birds.
