We also took the chance of a fine day to head down to the Kittiwake colony at Trewavas Head, which involves a bit of a scramble, a climb and some dodging of waves! But it's always worth the effort, with good numbers of birds on the ledges.
We were also able to resight 18 colour-ringed birds, including three French-ringed birds. Two of these had previously been seen at the now almost-abandoned colony at Rinsey Cliff, so it was interesting to see them moving down along the coast. One of our own colour-ringed adults from Rinsey (ringed last year) had also switched site, so it'll be interesting to see how many of these stay to breed.
|OWM-RNN was ringed as a chick at Point du Raz, Finisterre in 2007,|
being seen at Rinsey Cliff in 2012 and twice in 2013 and now at Trewavas Head
|BM-BRB will be another French bird, but seems to be missing a colour ring.|
Luckily, with a bit of patience we were able to read the metal ring number so all is not lost!
