Lundy Bird Observatory Update - 27 May 2023
Limited coverage today with little logged north of halfway wall. Two singing Common Rosefinch in Millcombe and St John's Valley made the headline. Pondsbury features two Teal broods but only an adult male and single young were glimpsed today. Peregrine were evident across the island, chasing down the odd Feral Pigeon and Collared Dove taking their chances on Lundy. Further variety came in the form of 10 Spotted Flycatcher plus singles of Dunlin, Willow and Garden Warbler. Female Whinchat were sighted at Quarter Wall and St Helen's Field, 3 White Wagtail around the village and Old Light and 2 Swift pushed north.
