The first Sandwich Terns of the year were seen today, at least 4 were fishing off the 
West coast  (c) Ben Porter

Following the success of yesterday we were again flick netting on Henllwyn this evening. House Martin was an addition to this year's ringing totals and another Sand Martin also found the net. (c) Richard Brown

House Martin have feathered legs and feet. They also frequently roost at altitude where it is cold. They have thus evolved their own leg warmers (c) Richard Brown

Sand Martin typically roost in reed beds. Their legs lack the feathering of their cousins. (c) Richard Brown

The number of Dunlin increased today with 24 feeding in the calm waters of Solfach

A Blue tit was seen in the Withies and then at Nant  (c) Ben Porter
