Whimbrel, Wren and a lost Doo
Nothing of note to report, my last Corn Bunting Survey of the season didn't turn up any extra birds and it looks like this years numbers are down, most likely due to crops being rotated and some cereal fields becoming isolated and others in new crops such as beans, potatoes and onions.
A Whimbrel at Whiting Ness, Arbroath on Monday evening but the tide wasn't coming in fast enough to bring it nearer before dusk
Looks like one of this years new Wrens at a local hide.
Yet another "homing pigeon" which has become just a pigeon, seen in my garden and on a neighbours roof. What I can see of its ring is SU17 but I think there must be more lettering
