Burry Inlet

2 Great Whites into roost with just 15+ Little Egrets this evening. Also 1 ringtail Hen Harrier, 1 Short-eared Owl & 2 Barn Owls. Earlier 2 Spotted Redshanks and a Greenshank in Penclawdd Pill and off Dalton's Point 202 Black-tailed Godwit [incl. 2 c-r birds] & 425 Knot.

Pete Potts replied 'LO+LY flag was ringed by us this summer in Iceland as a chick on 2nd July at Gilastadir, Reykholar as a medium sized chick c. 2 weeks old one of a brood of 2'

The first resighting of this bird was at Penclacwydd WWT on 30th August (Wendell Thomas) and it has been seen on a number of occasions since, both at Penclacwydd and Penclawdd. I've seen it three times at Dalton's Point this last week along with another c-r bird [Left: White/Red, Right: Red/White flag] that I'm still awaiting details for.
