New Year 2019

We wish all our Friends and visitors a Happy and bird filled New Year and hope to see you in 2019.

10th May

Over four hours of seawatching produced just 23 Manx Shearwaters, a Great Skua, three Arctic Skuas, a Black Tern and two Little Terns of interest whilst migration on the land appears to have come to a virtual standstill. 

A decent haul of butterflies were seen with the first Common Blue of the year, a Grizzled Skipper and 110 Small Coppers of note. Dragonflies are finally beginning to appear in some numbers with the first Four-spotted Chasers noted and lots of Azure and Red-eyed Damselflies and a few Hairy Dragonflies to be seen in the bushes.
