Right here is a recap of re-sightings of Medication Gull Yellow AZTZ that went to Goodwick Flagpoles the other day. many thanks to Hendrik for providing information of its re-sightings background thus far.
It was ringed by the Leipzig Buzzing Group at Rehbach Crushed Rock Pit, Leipzig, Sachsen (yellow arrowhead on map) in June 2019. This is 1194 kilometres from Fishguard/Goodwick, therefore not also much from the nest that one more bird (kept in mind at Newport the other day by Andy Sims) was ringed.
Yellow AZTZ reproduced in Czech Republic, near the boundary with Poland (Environment-friendly arrowhead) in 2021. It was seen in July this year at Heysham Power plant outfalls, Lancashire (where it was additionally seen in Sept 2019), prior to heading to Pembrokeshire.
With Any Luck it, as well as others from that location, will certainly remain to be spotted in Pembs.
On a different, entirely unassociated subject, on Friday recently we counted 83 Mute Swans eating the sloppy low-tide coast at Front Road, Pembroke Dock. Something yummy in the mud (surface area algae maybe?) most likely had actually attracted them there. They most likely move the tidewater a fair bit. Crossings in between Pembroke Dock as well as Hazel Coastline, Neyland are most likely fairly routine for instance, as well as additionally to as well as from Pembroke Millpond. All the swans on Friday looked fairly healthy and balanced.
Usually, around 100 Mute Swans wintertime in the Milford Sanctuary River as well as Cleddau Tidewater system (internet yearly month-to-month populace matters), so the Front Road group on Friday shows up to stand for fairly a high percentage of the anticipated “typical” entire estuary populace. We most likely do ignore their numbers a little bit. Milford Docks, f or instance, is not counted for the internet therefore any kind of consistently resident waterfowl there can be missed out on.
