Members only watchpoint:
4 Ringed Plovers logged by KM at 0930hr still present when I arrived at 1300, then at 1400 an adult Peregrine flew low over the Res going like a train and put up the waders which departed high NW. The Peregrine then sat on a stone opposite the hide it had a dark coloured ring on its right leg and appeared to be an adult male. It departed at 1435hr. Very few gulls max 50 BH gulls 30 LBBG’s.
