Orange Sallow. Only the second time I've seen this species. The first was one at a light in the Bristol Schools camp, almost exactly 3 years ago. It's not a rare species but until last night I've never had one in the trap.
Orcombe early on - 12 Swallows, 1 Sand Martin, 1 Grey Wagtail, 4+ Chiffchaffs, 1 Tree Pipit, 4 Blackcaps, 2 Yellow Wagtails, 3 'alba' wagtails, 4 Chaffinches, a high-flying Great Spotted Woodpecker and 5 Ring-necked Parakeets.
Juvenile Bar-tailed Godwits have been showing well off Mudbank of late. Of this morning's 11, two were sporting yellow flags on their right legs and red rings on their right. Both ringed birds were together but unfortunately they were too far out to photograph or read ring/flag details. Apparently Lee had much more success with them over at the Warren.
I photographed this magnificent Kestrel from the car. Its perch, at Maer farm, is the same one I used to regularly see a Little Owl on, but that was many years ago now.
