The first ringing day of the season came with the highlight of a Dunnock wearing a French ring, we weren’t expecting our first control quite so quickly but hopefully it is a good omen for the season!

Other bird news came in the form of a Grey Wagtail which was heard by Micke by the lighthouse this morning and then flew north.

A morning seawatch in a brisk wind produced the usual flock of Common Eiders with a few Long-tailed Ducks and Common Scoters mixed in. A Common Guillemot and several Razorbills also flew past and a Woodcock flushed up from by the Lighthouse

Three at the obs tonight – Matt, Espen and Micke
