19 October - finally arrived

After a delay in which heavy seas prevented the M S Oldenburg from sailing and fog at Liskeard grounded the helicopter, Tim Jones, Tim Davis, Richard Campey, James Diamond and Tom Bedford finally arrived on the island. They report a single Tufted Duck, two Teal, a Jack Snipe and a Reed Bunting at Pondsbury. A Snow Bunting was found at the North End, from where a couple of Fulmars and Manx Shearwaters were seen. A Woodcock was in Middle Park being chased by a Peregrine. Three Merlins and two Sparrowhawks were reported and there was a Firecrest in Millcombe.
