With so many Mediterranean Gulls around Mumbles it always surprises me that you don't see more around Crymlyn Burrows and the Neath River. You do get the odd few and this time of year seems to produce the best chance of seeing them. Today I found a winter plumage adult which also has a ring on. I couldn't read it at the time but the photo shows left 3P21 and right metal.
I look forward to Barry informing us whereabouts this bird is from.
Also today from the Neath River (between the rivermouth and Brunel Dock) this juv Little Egret was more confiding than the adults that use this area. Other stuff around here included another Little Egret, 87 Redshank, 1 Rock Pipit, and 5 Whitethroat. Good numbers of Small Copper were also flying around here with 15+ noted.
