This is a request, please, to start looking out for birds now, and to let me know immediately you see one, whether ringed or not, at:

Our highest priority target, which we need to catch, are the geolocator-tagged birds with red metal rings. We need to download the tag data to see where the birds have been. Second in importance are our un-tagged controls, with blue metal rings. There will also be birds around which we have ringed as nestlings; these will just have an uncoloured silver metal ring.

Wednesday, 14 March

Nene Washes - 2 GLOSSY IBIS in area of shallow water between Moreton's leam and the Gate entrance to the RSPB reserve 10:45h,  having flown from just west of Lord's Holt (Peter Beesley). Please note that the area of RSPB Low Wash hosts breeding and feeding birds that are very easily disturbed. This area is readily viewed from the south barrier bank, accessed via Eldernell or Bassenhally, which should minimise disturbance. Please avoid the section of Long / Central Drove beyond the gate at the corral at TL295996, which is about 2km from the start at TL277991.
