Phew . a scorcher !

This Little Egret (posted yesterday) revealed the red ring had the letter F and theyellow ring had the letter T. The interet CR-Birding site did not produce any projects with wo leg rings. Further research on Google and I found a project. I have contacted the organiser and await more information.

Owls were out and about at odd times. This early morning Barn Owl (bearing a metal ring) was probaby one of the young birds 'ringed' by IR.

Later a Long-eared owl hunting in bright sunshine after 10am must have been disturbed from its roost.

Finally, Lesser Whitethroats at Druridge were probably birds from a short way inland making their way to the coastal fringes before migrating. I often find more birds at Chevington in the dune scrub this time of year.
A glorious day.
