2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">Rich got a fantastic birthday present when Laura found a <b>Red-backed Shrike</b> near the Knoll behind the Farm. It showed well all day, feeding on Bumblebees and perching openly on the Elders. The <b>Wryneck</b> was not seen, despite a fair bit of searching, and has presumably continued after a three day stay. Other migrants today included three <b>Grey Heron</b>, seven <b>Teal</b>, seven <b>Common Scoter</b>, a female <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, three <b>Buzzard</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, two <b>Ringed Plover</b>, a <b>Snipe</b>, three <b>Whimbrel</b>, two <b>Curlew</b>, four <b>Sand Martin</b>, 483 <b>Swallow</b>, a <b>Yellow Wagtail</b>, three <b>Grey Wagtail</b>, 30 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b>, six <b>Robin</b>, 20 <b>Wheatear</b>, a <b>Song Thrush</b>, a <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, two <b>Blackcap</b>, four <b>Whitethroat</b>, nine <b>Chiffchaff</b>, 13 <b>Willow Warbler</b>, three <b>Goldcrest</b>, three <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> and two <b>Reed Bunting</b>. The paths each night are littered with fledgling <b>Manx Shearwaters</b>making their way to the sea. The Work Party cracked on with digging in the water pipes and we covered the final section late this afternoon. Barry has removed two old windows and replaced them with beautifully crafted new wooden ones. John has made a great start with cutting up the pieces of scrap metal too large to take off the Island (the old dumper truck is next).<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://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cxKhA1vxcX8/Ui-OrJ-gzTI/AAAAAAAACQ4/RouOfucQ3vQ/s1600/IMG_5820.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cxKhA1vxcX8/Ui-OrJ-gzTI/AAAAAAAACQ4/RouOfucQ3vQ/s640/IMG_5820.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WuftdvfzcbY/Ui-Ox5C9_cI/AAAAAAAACRA/sWBNsec-bdY/s1600/IMG_5816.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WuftdvfzcbY/Ui-Ox5C9_cI/AAAAAAAACRA/sWBNsec-bdY/s640/IMG_5816.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-biZ34RSIzWg/Ui-O5IjA00I/AAAAAAAACRI/8oCymTXirWg/s1600/P1050758.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="422" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-biZ34RSIzWg/Ui-O5IjA00I/AAAAAAAACRI/8oCymTXirWg/s640/P1050758.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The Red-backed Shrike above the Cottage.
