2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A rather substantial westerly swell delayed the changeover boat until noon. However Peter was happy to wait with the Dale Princess until the swell dropped and the work party arrived in time for lunch. They had already picked up a <b>Wryneck</b> at Martin’s Haven whilst waiting for the boat and our lingering individual made it two in a day for the workers. The brisk northerly kept a lot of the migrants skulking low in the bracken today, perhaps contributing to the lowest totals for some time; nine <b>Common Scoter</b>, a female <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, two <b>Snipe</b>, a <b>Whimbrel</b>, two <b>Curlew</b>, four <b>Black-headed Gull</b>, a <b>Grey Wagtail</b>, 35 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b>, 14 <b>Robin</b>, 53 <b>Wheatear</b>, three <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, a <b>Blackcap</b>, two <b>Whitethroat</b>, five <b>Chiffchaff</b>, 14 <b>Willow Warbler</b>, two <b>Goldcrest</b>, five <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> and a <b>Goldfinch </b>were logged. Nine <b>Common Dolphin</b> were feeding energetically off from Crab Bay. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-PXJhJNHZiiY/Ui47jAnQxNI/AAAAAAAACQY/FVs0VT9wbqo/s1600/DSC_4889.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-PXJhJNHZiiY/Ui47jAnQxNI/AAAAAAAACQY/FVs0VT9wbqo/s640/DSC_4889.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Jslw-NUJlIs/Ui47ytmnWPI/AAAAAAAACQg/1X1-pjCczXg/s1600/DSC_4880.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Jslw-NUJlIs/Ui47ytmnWPI/AAAAAAAACQg/1X1-pjCczXg/s640/DSC_4880.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-owIWw1D5JI0/Ui48DJ8Q9qI/AAAAAAAACQo/5mYL_U5yHUM/s1600/DSC_4884.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-owIWw1D5JI0/Ui48DJ8Q9qI/AAAAAAAACQo/5mYL_U5yHUM/s640/DSC_4884.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div align="center" class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Our autumn work party had no sooner arrived to Skokholm than they were mattock in hand and digging in the water pipes at the Farm.
