Highlight for the members however was the capture and ringing of a male Sparrowhawk caught in the SK trap (left CJ), the first ringed this year.
Nine Little Egrets stayed near the islands and a Peregrine gave a display of hunting power over the east side and 2 Pintail flew south down the Dee. The 5 Rock Pipits this morning included the Norwegian ringed bird back from its visit to Red Rocks the other day.
Three red-head Goosanders flew west between Middle and Little Eye just after noon.
After the tide 113 Pale-bellied Brent Geese were counted on the ridge in the evening light on a very still evening.
