29th March 2021

 Weather:  WSW force 6/7  dropping SW 4/5

A Raven hung about the islands most of the day, at one time interacting with a female Peregrine on the ground. The best wader sighting today was a flock of 18 Golden Plover in flight, although as always the most numerous at high tide were the Oystercatchers.



 Forty seven Turnstones fed in the sunshine.

 Fifteen Purple Sandpipers roosted the tide at the north end, as usual showing superbly well.


The second Swallow of the spring came through and a Chiffchaff was present on the island. A sea watch produced 8 Red-throated Divers, 3 Great Crested Grebes, 50 Common Scoter, 4 Guillemots and a Razorbill. The Eider was still here and 2 more Canada Geese flew west. A Peacock butterfly was an early sighting.
