A quiet day at the Observatory but 6 Spoonbills flew over high west, 6 Black-tailed Godwits and 2 Green Sandpipers were on the NWT pools, and a Med Gull was with thousands feeding over the ridge and marshes for flying ants. Ringing produced a few common birds including 2 Lesser Whitethroats, a Reed Warbler, and 2 Blackcaps.
