14 January 2011

Just some news from yesterday, Nick Smith had 2 Goosanders fly in as dusk approached, also other news from Nick comes re the returning Mute Swan yesterday, it's yellow ringed number B7SP, it was ringed at Belvide on the 1st June last year, a 5 year old female, and as I said yesterday was last seen at Westport in Sept 10.

Also news regarding the Little Owl yesterday, it's probably the 2nd or 3rd record for Westport, Bill Low had one on the 15th February 84, not far away from Jeff's record yesterday.


  1. B7SF was the one we had last autumn and couldn't read it - sorry I could, and you and Dave couldn't, thats right. B7SP is, as far as i know, a new bird for the pond.

  2. So the one the other day is a different bird then, excellent!
