Wed 1 Jun to Sat 4 Jun – Rook, Golden Plover, Cuckoo
News from Tony Taylor is of a Rook (a Lundy rarity), which spent most of its time in the Tillage Field from 1st to 3rd; a Cuckoo daily to 4th, 3 Golden Plovers on Ackland's Moor on 3rd; the two broods of Teal still present, though the smaller brood now appears to be down to a single duckling; and a Cormorant (scarce in summer) fishing in the Landing Bay on 4th. Singing male Chiffchaffs continue to hold territory in Millcombe and at St Helen's and Quarter Wall Copses.
