7th July 2014

Weather: W 2, backing N 2, 3/8 cloud, good vis

Never a dull day on the island and the Chairman assisted a pet owner with a injured dog today, the dog had a twisted stomach and was rushed off to the vets where it was operated on immediately with a successful outcome.

Back on the island 256 Curlew were counted on the ebb tide early morning and two Little Egrets were along the reef.

A single Whitethroat was in the Ovs garden again.

A summer plumaged Mediterranean Gull was seen on the beach near Little Eye and the polish colour-ringed Black-headed Gull ('TMEN') was back on the pontoon at WKML.

Rounding off an eventful, if not bird-filled, day the Chairman gave a talk about the Observatory and our work to a local School.
