Both Peregrine and Kestrel were seen today, the Kestrel has obviously been taking advantage of the good number of Short-tailed field voles seen around the island this winter. Sea birds noted were 15 Common Scoter, 3 Great Crested Grebes and 1 Red-throated Diver. keeping the Magpie company was a Blackbird, 2 Song Thrushes, 7 Wrens, 2 Robins, a Rock Pipit and a Dunnock which was singing at one stage. The full complement of 7 Purple Sandpipers roosted also 1,000 of the 2,000 present stayed at the south end of the main island.
