Another ‘fall’ of Black Redstarts saw them into double figures again this morning including 6 together in Crabby Bay. Also, fair numbers of White Wagtails around the island, a single Brambling ‘over’, a Kingfisher at the waterworks and a high count for this year of 12 Turnstones on the high tide roost with 37 Mediterranean Gulls.
A Water Pipit showed very well but perhaps because it was spending much of its time preoccupied chasing away Rock Pipits from a patch of seaweed swarming with flies.
Ringing included 2 Cetti’s Warblers.
