Foreigners on the beach

A quick visit to the high tide at Ynyslas this morning proved very rewarding. Amongst a group of 15 Sanderlings was a colour-ringed bird originally ringed in Portugal (bottom right in photo). Several ringed Sandwich Terns, including one with a Dutch ring (centre), and a Black-headed Gull were also present.  I managed to read all but one of the numbers on the Dutch tern and two of the BTO-ringed ones. Hopefully ringing details will follow shortly.
