WeBS counts – Flemingston Moor and Sully Island

Some surface water on Flemingston Moor today for the first time in months on a WeBS visit. No Lapwing but 6 Grey Heron, 22 Mallard, 2 Greylag Geese, 2 Mute Swan, 4 Canada Geese and a Cormorant made a change from the almost complete lack of waterbirds in recent months. Also present a Peregrine on a pylon, Stonechat pair, 5 Mistle Thrush, 4 Stock Dove and a Raven.

Earlier, the WeBS count for Sully Island and surrounds included 8 Curlew, 1 Dunlin, 2 Ringed Plover, 46 Turnstone, 69 Oystercatcher, 132 Black-headed Gull, 13 Herring Gull and 9 Lesser Black-backed Gull.
