The early morning tide necessitated an early trip across to the island.
It soon became apparent that we had the first small fall of Goldcrests of the spring following the single bird here last Sunday. Four were ringed out of a total of 8 birds,
Two more Robins ringed continued the recent passage.
Other seed eaters over were 5 Goldfinches and a Siskin. The drake Eider floated off the east side and a noisy Canada Goose made itself known by flying around distantly. Two Goosanders drifted off Middle as the tide ebbed.
A pair of Carrion Crows seem to be constructing a nest on the chimney of the victorian building.
