31 Oct – Balearic Shearwaters off the East Side


Friday 31st October: Rob Duncan reports that his last day on the island was very quiet with just a light passage of 100 Redwings and 200 Chaffinches. The day’s undoubted highlight was “an amazing 14 Balearic Shearwaters just off the East Side – this was probably an underestimate but we were able to count 14 in one group!”. This is the second highest number of Balearics recorded in a single day, the record being 27 (26 off North Light and one passing Rat Island) on 21 October 2012.

As far as we know there are no visiting birders on the island this week, but any updates received will be posted here.
