- My first Guillemot chick has fledged, "Regolith" was not on the ledge this morning. Initially site R was empty, but then a single adult returned with a large fish. She continued to hold the fish in her beak for almost 2 hours before dropping it. I'm assuming that the male adult is at sea with "Regolith". The presence of two adults and no chick would have meant that fledging had been unsuccessful, either through predation, or failure of communication between "Regolith" and its father. I'm hoping that I don't see two adults on this site in the next few days.
- 11 chicks (A,B,C,D,E,F,I,M,N,Q,S)
- 9 feeds (E,E,A,N,B,I,E,M,E)
- 35 Puffins seen on land at St Philip's Stone.
