Tuesday, 23 June 2015

With little migrants around (and staff all taking a well-deserved post-bunting rest), the normal Bardsey routine resumed on the 23rd. Up to 24 Gannets were seen out to sea and 15 Common Scoters flew south along West Coast. The Narrows held two Grey Herons and six Curlews whilst one Common Sandpiper at the North End was the first of autumn passage. A cracking adult Mediterranean Gull was perhaps the highlight of the day as it drifted down the coastline whilst two Collared Doves, eight Swifts, nine Starlings, and three Siskins were also recorded.

Still buzzing from the bunting!!
A few more shots from last week.....

And back to normality, a Meadow Pipit 


  1. thanks for the up date. That is not Stteffan from Germany that came to the Copeland Island one weekend a few years ago who wrote this?
