Today Bardsey welcomed the Next Generation Birders for a week experiencing Observatory life. They were, unfortunately, greeted by a deluge of rain, but not even that could damper their spirits.
With eager eyes searching the island a total of one Grey Heron, eight Common Scoters, one Buzzard, two Dunlins, one Whimbrel, 17 Curlews, three Redshanks, two Common Sandpipers, three Turnstones, 585 Kittiwakes, six Sand Martins, one Sedge Warbler, two Blackcaps, six Chiffchaffs, 13 Willow Warblers, 14 Goldcrests, and 693 Linnets were recorded. Out at sea eight Risso’s Dolphins performed well to the NGB crowd.
