23rd January 2010

The fog rolled in at 08.00am, and with 100yards visibility locating anything was difficult. Luckily it cleared later but there was still not a lot about. The Brent numbered only 90 around the island but the double white ringed bird was seen (left, centre of picture).

A party of 5 Wigeon (left) and then a single Teal (right) drifted off the north end, and 14 Common Scoter were settled further out towards the wind farm.
One or two Skylarks passed overhead and on the ground just the usual Dunnocks, Song Thrushes and Blackbirds today with no Redwings seen. A female Peregrine hunted across the east hoyle bank.
