Went ringing this morning with the UEA ringing group at Waxham on the E coast. Weather was not promising so expectations were low, and indeed there were very few migrants around and up in the air. I really liked the site though, it has a good potential - looking forward to return there on a good day. We ringed mainly Meadow Pipits but also some Goldcrests and other common birds.


Because of the slow catch I had time to walk around a bit. Few migrants around - some Redwings, Bramblings, Lesser Redpolls, and one flyover Lapland Bunting was nice. Some pinkfeet and cranes in nearby fields. The Grey Seal colony on the beach is impressive:

Thanks to Iain, Claire and Tony for an enjoyable morning.
