A glorious week on Lundy which started with a Red-veined Darter near Pondsbury, which we think is a first for Lundy, from photographs Richard captured and identified by Tim Davis and Tim Jones. This was followed by Tim Jones seeing a female Teal on Pondsbury, but instead of just a single bird sighting it was accompanied by four ducklings, a first breeding record for this species on the island. And finally on the last day, on the way down the beach road to catch the Oldenburg Richard had a first for his Lundy list in the shape of a Black Guillemot which had been absent for well over a week. This great bird was sitting on the rock just south of Miller's Cake.
