Alvecote Pools SSSI

An early evening trip produced 14 Common Shelduck on Mill Pool along with a Little Egret and a single Common Sandpiper. Over on Teal Pool there were 2 Common Redshank one of which carried colour rings with the following combination: blue over black on left leg and pink over blue on the right leg. I will submit the combination to Euring and try and find out the bird's origins and wanderings. Unfortunately there was no sign of the pair of Common Redstarts in the Teal Pool hedge today.
