Sheer numbers !

18 April 2013

Tim Jones reports some 5000 Manx Shearwaters and 1000 Kittiwakes off the island today. Also one Grasshopper Warbler, four White Wagtails, about 50 Wheatears and 200 Swallows. A single Short-eared Owl was present and two Arctic Terns still lingering off the East Side.

  1. The seabirds were seen by Tony Taylor, who said they were streaming south off the West Side, many quite close in, following a night of SSW gales. Tim Davis and I flushed the owl from heather cover along the East Side Path near Tibbetts.
