2nd & 3rd Nov – Hatches battened down...but Swallows battle through

Chris & Carol Baillie, have had a rather quiet time (bird-wise, at least...) on a storm-bound island, with their departure delayed by weather for two days.

Saturday 2nd November

"Strong westerlies have limited bird activity. Of note were two Swallows past Millcombe, a Firecrest and the on-staying Chiffchaff, Sparrowhawk and Merlin."

Sunday 3rd November

"Two Swallow, three overhead Skylark and a few Chaffinches on the move. Firecrest and Chiffchaff and five Goldcrests in Millcombe. Sea quiet."
