22.05.18. Birdlog.

A look over No.3 & No.6 tanks this evening saw c1000 Black-tailed Godwit sitting out the tide. There were 3 Avocet on No.6 but generally the only other species with anything like numbers were the c100 Common Shelduck. It’s got the feel like the summer doldrums are here.

Also a colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit I saw here on 05.05.18 was ringed in Hernan Cortés, Extremadure, SW Spain 15.02.17 and also seen in Ireland in 2017. It is possible this bird could be Limosa limosa which is the dominant form in this area bur probably likely ‘islandica’ given the date and the location of my sighting.
