A team of eight ringers caught 48 birds on the night of 22 November comprising 34 Dunlin, 10 Redshank, 3 Black-tailed Godwit and 1 Grey Plover.

There were three retraps, a redshank ringed as an adult in 2014, another ringed earlier this year and a Dunlin ringed as an adult in 2015. The three Black-tailed Godwits were colour ringed as part of an ongoing study of the movements of this species.
