Wild About Mull
Tuesday, 21 May 2013
There have been plenty of Turnstone passing through on their way north but a single bird that I took photos of was sporting some fancy leg wear. I sent the details in and received this response...
We ringed 225 Turnstones at Mauretania this winter and this is the first sighting.
EUP was ringed on 10-12-2012 at Iouik, Mauretania and has not been seen since.
I wonder if the Turnstone thought about catching
...because Black Guillemots seem to have that sorted already. A bit of seaweed makes it seem like home...
...and there may even be scope for a nest site.
It seems to be an uphill struggle...
...a ferry ramp is probably not the best place to set up home.
It looks like somewhere a bit more permanent is required!
