17th December 2009

The cold north easterly wind today made the Turnstones elect to roost the tide on the west cliff, and the Eider that has been showing for the week or so also choose the west side to step out on the rocks.

A Rock Pipit (right) and a Blackbird both from the end of October were retrapped and were found to have each gained weight during their stay on the island.

The air-sea rescue helicopter made an interesting diversion, but no new birds today, so beautiful views from the island are shown here to compensate.
