25th March 2021

Weather: SSW force 1

The elusive Red-legged Partridge was still on the main island early morning.

More regular fare for this period of early spring were similar to yesterday but in larger numbers. There were no less than 30 Woodpigeons, 2 Jackdaws, and 6 Magpies.


The Merlin which was also found was no doubt eyeing up some Meadow Pipits coming through. Four Goldcrests were down on the island and together with the Meadow Pipits and the odd alba wagtail were the only small migrants. Sea birds seen included 2 Little Gulls, 2 Red-throated Divers, 8 Red-breasted Mergansers, 5 Razorbill, 4 Guillemots,120 Common Scoter and a single Gannet. Eleven Purple Sandpipers are still hanging on, and 525 Curlew was an impressive count.
