13th November 2016

Weather:  NW force 3
Shore birds counted on the island today included 7,000 Oystercatchers, 65 Bar-tailed Godwits, 50 Turnstones and 7 Purple Sandpipers, while sea birds seen were 1 Red-throated Diver, 5 Great Crested Grebes and 3 Guillemots. The only obvious small arrivals were 2 Skylarks, others on the island would probably be winter visitors such as Song Thrush, Robins and Wrens.
Our own insect specialist was joined today by 2 colleagues from Stockholm Museum who enjoyed a pleasant day on the island.
Ringed: 1 Wren, 1 Song Thrush.       [ 518-30 ]
