Sun 29 May – Tree Sparrow, Short-eared Owl & Black Redstart

Today's highlights included a Tree Sparrow – an extremely rare visitor to Lundy and the first in spring since 1996 – feeding outside Brambles (Tony & Ann Taylor), a Short-eared Owl seen between Quarter Wall and Pondsbury by Philip Lymbery, and a female Black Redstart that spent much of the day around 'Sunset Buttress' on the West Side (Tony & Ann Taylor).
