13th & 14th Oct – Callum lingers, but things finally calm down

Though centered a long way north of Lundy, Storm Callum continued to pack a punch throughout Saturday 13th, with severe gales and claggy rain resulting in the cancellation of transport to and from the island for the second weekend running.

Finally making it to Lundy via MS Oldenburg from Bideford on Sunday 14th, Richard Campey and Malcolm Davies report: "Rain cleared by 11.00 am and Millcombe bathed in sunshine, with 25 Blackcaps, one Lesser Redpoll, eight Chiffchaffs, two Greenfinches, and a Tree Pipit heard calling overhead. Clearing skies and a glorious afternoon but consequently quiet on the bird front, highlights being a Swallow and four Stonechats, with the addition of two Red Admirals."
