News has come in this evening that 2IRR, the "Christmas Dinner" bird mentioned in the blog on 30 December 2014, is on the move again, moving up from the Bay of Biscay to Saint-Brieuc Bay in Brittany, where it was recorded today by Anthony Sturbois. It will be interesting to see whether this bird moves back up to the big flocks at Regneville in Normandy.
Secondly, apologies for the lack of input to the blog in recent times, and, indeed, for the very slow rate of feedback some of you will have been experiencing from me recently - I'm currently some three to four weeks behind with data entry. This has been for a variety of reasons, not least the organisation and survey work associated with the International Swan Census, which was held over last weekend. I am hoping to try and catch up somewhat over the next few weeks, so please keep the records coming in!!
