Next spring is not far away as I realised specially this year! Amazed how quickly it went!! Don't wish our lives away!
Good evening all. Seems though the beautiful Monty has finally left! Safe journey to him and all his family and look forward to seeing him again next year! Feel very sad at this moment:(
Lol, Sheila, we all do it! Not a problem.
The 2016 sightings are both the same one, I think (I have probably got the month wrong).
You are not fuddled at all. It is all my fault, the whole flipping post!!!!
First, apologises for using the wrong name for you - I know full well it is Alison!
I have absolutely no idea where I got the idea you had seen 1J, let alone why I noted it!
I know you saw Blue S1(15), but that was in Senegal! It must have been one of my many days for getting things the wrong way round.
But I do have a note of Blue 1J being seen in Cadiz on 24 Jan 2016 by Rafa Garcia. Have I got that wrong too, or was he seen twice. I guess that is possible!
Thank you so much for sorting me out!
And thank you Mike :)
Sheila, I'm a bit confused by your last post. I can only find a record of 1J being seen in Cadiz in March 2016, not this year. I thought that he had not been seen at all in 2018.
And is Ann Copland one of my long lost relatives...? I posted a photo of 1J in March this year, but the photo was taken in 2016 at Horn Mill Farm.
Please forgive me if I'm just in a fuddle!
Further to Keith's post above concerning Blue 1J(13)m, although he was seen and photographed in Cadiz in March this year, by Alison Copland, Gwash River have said they have not seen him this year. He was seen fairly regularly in 2017 at Gwash River/Horn Mill and landed twice on the MB nest, but sadly no sightings of him back in the UK this year.
It was lovely to visit Dyfi too we saw Monty scoffing a fish on the perch and we waited for him to take it to his family after eating the head but he left a very small piece It is a lovely reserve. Great to see Monty enjoying some "me" time before he sets off! Love him and hope he has a safe journey as I do for all the others and specially the youngsters!
