30th December 2009

A miserable and cold day nevertheless produced 3 Red-throated Divers, 3 Great Crested Grebes and 8 Common Scoters on the sea. The male and female Peregrines were still present today with a male Kestrel over the island, and although the Sparrowhawk was not seen again today it seems to have made its presence felt in the shape of a dead first year female Blackbird that was ringed here on 23rd October; Song Thrushes appear to have been luckier as 5 were again counted. Waders included 13 Purple Sandpipers, 420 Curlew and 50 Grey Plover.
