2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">An overnight avian exodus left Skokholm rather quiet. A <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a <b>Kestrel</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, a <b>Ringed Plover</b>, two <b>Whimbrel</b>, a <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Common Sandpiper</b>, two <b>Black-headed Gull</b>, two <b>Tree Pipit</b>, 35 <b><i>alba </i>wagtail</b> including only three definite <b>White Wagtail</b>, 14 <b>Robin</b>, seven <b>Wheatear</b>, six <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, a <b>Reed Warbler</b>, a male <b>Blackcap</b>, two <b>Whitethroat</b>, three <b>Chiffchaff</b>, four <b>Willow Warbler</b> and a <b>Goldcrest</b> were logged. Four <b>Harbour Porpoise</b> and ten&nbsp;<b>Common Dolphin</b> were off the Lighthouse and an unidentified bat was in South Haven. The Islanders were to be found in the<b> Manx Shearwater</b> study plots today, following the fortunes of the younger <b>Manx Shearwaters</b> which are still in their burrows. The dry weather, which has already deprived us of countless waders which would have dropped in to North Pond had there been water, has now deprived us of clean clothes, drinking water and a flushing toilet at the Lighthouse. With the tanks totally empty, we are now transporting water from the Farm Well.&nbsp;<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/-cLUxYTNo-a8/Uij8GCifvyI/AAAAAAAACNg/I1inpHU2SVQ/s1600/DSC_4821.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cLUxYTNo-a8/Uij8GCifvyI/AAAAAAAACNg/I1inpHU2SVQ/s640/DSC_4821.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-S2qFo0VTcGk/Uij8UG-K3NI/AAAAAAAACNo/fyr8xsAm5DQ/s1600/DSC_4844.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-S2qFo0VTcGk/Uij8UG-K3NI/AAAAAAAACNo/fyr8xsAm5DQ/s640/DSC_4844.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kTySrxQp_ug/Uij8ogtTIbI/AAAAAAAACNw/T4mWiMSq4nc/s1600/DSC_4837.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kTySrxQp_ug/Uij8ogtTIbI/AAAAAAAACNw/T4mWiMSq4nc/s640/DSC_4837.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Manx Shearwater productivity is still looking really good.
