30th November to 1st December

A Snow Bunting at the north end of the island was the highlught of another bright and calm day on the 30th. A Teal remained with the Mallard flock in Solfach, two Snipe and a Woodcock were present in the wetlands, a Skylark flew overhead and 11 Song Thrushes, a Redwing and two Blackcaps were present in the gardens. December started on a quiet note, with the most notable sightings including a Lapwing and a Mediterranean Gull.
