First Adult LBBG reaches Iberia
With my first colour ringed adult LBBGs being seen in NW France a few days back, it was only a matter of time before the first autumn migrant reached Iberia. Last night Manuel Petiz sent me news and a very nice photo of Black 2AL6 on the beach at Espinho, Portugal on 24th July. This adult was known to be in Guernsey this summer. Some of our adult LBBGs really don't hang around after the end of the breeding season!
