Pitsea Catch 27/2/16

Another great session on the tip today with a single catch of 299 birds.  Highlights included a total of 21 Lesser black backs (all adults).  Presumably northern birds stopping off on route to their breeding grounds.

All of these were colour ringed, so hopefully some recoveries to come.

Two Greater black backs, 130 Herring and 130 Black heads made for the rest of the catch.  A few retraps included a dutch and belgian bird.

A couple of Med gulls were seen around the tip face to.
