The fierce weather relented somewhat today so an opportunity to get the 2024 island annual list underway. I wasn’t expecting much given the mild temperatures of late but managed over 50 species, a good return here during January. Highlights included Water Pipit, Hooded Crow, Cattle Egret, Merlin, Siskin, Water Rail, Grey Wagtail and Black Redstart.
