Difficult visibility this morning with the coasts appearing and disappearing until Wales finally showed properly in the early afternoon. The Brents remained at 131 pale and 2 dark. Wintering waders included the expected species :- Oystercatcther, Curlew, Bar-tailed Godwit, Redshank, Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Sanderling, also a Little Egret and Shag. Still a number of Song Thrushes (including the partial albino), and 2 Blackbirds.
A Song Thrush that was ringed had 6 old and 3 new greater coverts that are less bright and slightly longer (not as easy to see as in a Blackbird, but showing well in this picture) making it a bird fledged this year.
