2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">Today again proved how everything we do is dictated by the weather. Having had one changeover boat in the morning, we had a surprise second boat in the afternoon when it transpired that the weather is due to pick up from the north and may result in no boat for the best part of a week. It meant the premature end of the Work Party, which was a real shame as we were getting huge amounts accomplished and everyone was having such a great time. The number of jobs ticked off this week has been impressive, but the new windows, doors and door frames, the South Haven track drainage, the digging in of the water pipes and the cutting up of the large chunks of scrap metal are all jobs which will benefit Skokholm for years to come. Thank you to everyone involved. The mixture of poor weather, hard work and multiple boats was no doubt reflected in the bird totals for the day. A <b>Wryneck</b>to the west of Home Meadow may have been the same bird that frequented the north of North Plain for three days from the 7th, however it seems just as likely that it was a new bird. Other migrants included 21 <b>Teal</b>, 14 <b>Common Scoter</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, a <b>Curlew</b>, 28 <b>Lesser Black-backed Gull</b>, 70 <b>Swallow</b>, a <b>House Martin</b>, 90 <b>Meadow Pipit</b>, 23 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b>, 25 <b>Robin</b>, 30 <b>Wheatear</b> the majority of which arrived with the rain in the afternoon and included at least ten Greenland race birds, four <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, two <b>Blackcap</b>, 30 <b>Chiffchaff</b>, four <b>Willow Warbler</b>, four <b>Goldcrest</b>, two <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> and three <b>Starling</b>. Three <b>Porpoise </b>and 12 <b>Common Dolphin</b> showed well off the Lighthouse. So we are now down to six, with Howard and Tegan staying on to help us with the Lighthouse woodwork. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-46kQhNQ_XfI/UjOFldkzcuI/AAAAAAAACS0/VcagOra5Q9M/s1600/IMG_5830.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-46kQhNQ_XfI/UjOFldkzcuI/AAAAAAAACS0/VcagOra5Q9M/s640/IMG_5830.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The Wryneck on North Plain.
