A wet Monday still produced 2 Kingfishers and a Water Rail in front of the hide. The feeders attracted Marsh Tit and Nuthatch among others. On the water two calling adult Mediterranean Gulls were quite superb.

Ringing in the study area we caught a Marsh Tit which was originally ringed last year as a juvenile. It is difficult to say if it was male or female from the wing measurement; but it was a good weight just under 11g. Other birds caught include: a male Nuthatch, Blue Tits, Great Tits and Long-tailed Tit. Other sightings: 12 Tufted Duck, 4 Mandarin ( 1 male and 3 females) a large flock of Redwing and Fieldfares was around for a short time in the morning.
