SCAN CAN...Norwegian Turnstone!

The SCAN group met today to target a Norwegian ringed Turnstone, first spotted at Horton's Nose, Kinmel Bay, by a photographer on the 3rd March 2011.

The site was recced several times before the attempt and the bird expertly tweeked and trapped along with 61 Sanderling, 17 Dunlin and 30 Turnstone including 3 local retraps.
Up to 220 Sanderling currently in that area which is a great count.
