6th Sep – Rose-coloured Starling

A juvenile Rose-coloured Starling was in the chicken run outside Quarters, but things were generally a lot quieter on the migrant front. A female Sparrowhawk was terrorising the Starlings around the Village, a Ringed Plover flew over, whilst warblers and flycatchers were represented by just three Willow Warblers, a Chiffchaff, five Blackcaps, a Whitethroat and a Spotted Flycatcher.

The shearwater and petrel ringers took a well-deserved night off!
