Excellent selection of woodland species!

29th January 2011 – bright and frosty/calm
A check over the sea mid-afternoon produced just 100 Common Scoter and 7 Red-throated Diver.
Wildfowl and Waders
A group of 9 Barnacle Geese were the pick of the wildfowl while waders included 95 Bar-tailed Godwit along with Greenshank and Purple Sandpiper.
Three Raven included the regular colour-ringed individual but only 2 Little Egret and a single Merlin were logged. A visit to some of the less regularly frequented areas of the island provided 3 Tree Sparrow and an excellent selection of woodland species including 13 Long-tailed Tit, 3 Coal Tit and 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker.
