Weekly report (GBW and ring reading)

Garden Birdwatch - 5 Long-tailed Tit visited the feeders on Thursday, this was the first record since the first week in January and becomes only the second record in the last 13 months. Goldfinch numbers have also increased this week with a number of juveniles attending the garden feeders. The table below shows the results for this week and for Goldfinch for this time of year since 2010. Week 39 finished on Saturday.

I had planned to go to the Hayle estuary Saturday and Sunday afternoon but a bout of food poisoning Saturday evening saw me laid up for two days. Thankfully I did manage Saturday afternoon. An influx of Med Gull's had arrived with there being none on the previous three weekends to 35 this weekend of which 3 were colour ringed, Green RR00, Red HJN1 and Red PJR4. Green RR00 is a French bird ringed in Vendee and seen numerous occasions in Vendee for the breeding season and wintering on the Hayle with a spell in Las Palmas in March 2014. I have yet to hear back from the other two with one being Hungarian, the other Polish (I believe).
