2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A <b>Wryneck</b> on North Plain this morning, and again briefly this evening, was the first since a bird briefly at the Knoll on October 2nd 2011. Other migrants included a <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, a <b>Ringed Plover</b>, a <b>Whimbrel</b>, two <b>Curlew</b>, only 18 <b>Swallow</b>, 28 <b><i>alba </i>wagtail</b> including four <b>White Wagtail</b>, 18 <b>Robin</b>, a <b>Whinchat</b>, 61 <b>Wheatear</b>, four <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, four <b>Whitethroat</b>, 20 <b>Chiffchaff</b>, 17 <b>Willow Warbler</b>, four <b>Goldcrest</b>, nine <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> and four <b>Starling</b>. Now the <b>Puffins</b> have departed our shores we could get in to the study plot at Crab Bay to firm up the marker posts without causing any disturbance. They will now hopefully survive the winter in position so we can monitor the same burrows next year and see how productivity compares with this year. The lightning and heavy showers continued offshore during the night and one shower clipped the Farm, but the Lighthouse missed the weather and the washing on the line was still dry at dawn. Today saw a repeat of yesterday, with the weather somehow missing us. Tonight the first proper showers for a long time hit, but will it be enough to fill the Lighthouse tanks and, more importantly, put some water in the ponds?<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/-N_ipF2-k6Ew/UiuddX0xAbI/AAAAAAAACPM/zzC0PJGci7Y/s1600/DSC_4859.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-N_ipF2-k6Ew/UiuddX0xAbI/AAAAAAAACPM/zzC0PJGci7Y/s640/DSC_4859.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zpW5lV9v3u8/Uiud5lEVcQI/AAAAAAAACPU/aeD4g86BmgE/s1600/IMG_2614.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zpW5lV9v3u8/Uiud5lEVcQI/AAAAAAAACPU/aeD4g86BmgE/s640/IMG_2614.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The Wryneck twitch and the Wryneck (just about).
