got some feedback on that colour-ringed gbbg in the cuckmere on 21 december. it was ringed in le havre and this was the first sighting in the uk but more remarkable was the fact that its sibling was seen at dungeness the same day and again that was the first uk sighting of that bird. nothing else to report lately, saw a merg and 7 razorbills in sovereign harbour on xmas eve.
recently there have been two blackcaps in neighbours' gardens so i put some apples out and they were very quickly found. pics taken through kitchen window
