Its been all go at the British birdwatching fair Rutland where we have been delighted to meet again lots of people visiting the stand who have visited the Obs this year. Also there has been huge interest in the British Isles newest and most southerly bird Observatory from hundreds of people including Wildlife Presenter Chris Packham.


I understand conditions were as windy and unsettled as in Leicestershire today. Paul Veron managed to find a sheltered spot this afternoon for a brief sea-watch reporting:

Balearic Shearwater                        33 west and 4 east

Manx                                                    4 east

Fulmar  2 east

Common tern    1 east
