Look out for colour-ringed birds please! The large colony on Anglesey Skerries was abandoned this year (due to a pair of Peregrines settling on the islands) and RSPB have an appeal out for any info on where they might have gone :t:
Thanks for the update N, I'll get on it. I did see ringed birds last week, but paid no attention to them. I'll head along there tomorrow and try to get some pics. I've also found a place with a few little terns.
The terns have left the foreshore and are nesting now so I won't be able to get any photos of ringed birds until the chicks hatch and leave the nests and the birds start congregating on the foreshore again.
One interesting observation. The terns have always nested on the sand here for as far back as I can remember. Two years ago a storm totally wiped out all their nests and this year they are not nesting on the sand, they're up in the dunes among the grass. They're not stupid these birds, they have problem solving intelligence.
