No really, a small update on patch birds. Common Tern nesting. However, due to the proximity of lots of hungry LBB chicks and knowing how tasty these gulls find Common Tern chicks, this breeding attempt will fail. Starlings, post breeding murmuration in situ – 50+ birds and rising. Goldfinches, Swifts and House Sparrows daily. Herring Gulls breeding. Bird X (or was it Y?) has successfully fledged young. The other night there were four cracking full summer plumaged Meds between the piers in Yarmouth. Nice. Ringed Plover this morning. More nice.
The patch list has picked up a couple of ticks, but that might more accurately be a couple that should have been entered already – it’s the complacency of recording the common species situation again. Subsequently the year list probably needs updating.
