11 Oct – Grey Phalarope

Today's star bird (Saturday 11th October) was a Grey Phalarope picked out off the West Side by the MARINElife team on the 'round-the-island' trip on MS Oldenburg at the end of the day. Further details to come...

Meanwhile, the two Tonys and Luke Philips returned to the mainland this evening, with highlights of their final day including: 3 Sparrowhawks, 150 Swallows, 15 House Martins, a Grey Wagtail, 30 Blackcaps, 20 Chiffchaffs  and a Reed Bunting. The Tufted Duck was reportedly seen again by a day visitor.
