22nd & 23rd May – A late(ish) Osprey

Tony Taylor sums up Tuesday 22nd with that most telling of birding adjectives: "quiet".

Today, 23rd, brought sightings (by others) of an Osprey flying north past Millcombe and up the East Side and the Hawfinch was seen again. Other observations included a female Sparrowhawk, a Golden Plover in South West Field, a female Kestrel, a Yellow Wagtail flying north over Benjamin's Chair, and a Dunlin that Tony advises, "narrowly escaped capture by a male Peregrine".

A check of the nestboxes in the Old Light Manx Shearwater colony revealed that one of last year's successful pair was incubating a fresh-looking egg.
