2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">The weather has been fantastic this year and we have thus missed very few changeovers. Today was no exception and the nine o’clock boat came as scheduled. The first <b>Grasshopper Warbler</b> of the autumn was the avian highlight of the day. Other records included a <b>Water Rail</b>, seven <b>Black-tailed Godwit</b> heading east, six <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Common Sandpiper</b>, a <b>Turnstone</b>, a <b>Great Skua</b>, a juvenile <b>Cuckoo</b>, 17 <b>Swallow</b>, a <b>House Martin</b>, a <b>Yellow Wagtail</b>, 26 <b><i>alba </i>wagtail</b>, four <b>Robin</b>, four <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, a <b>Reed Warbler</b>, ten <b>Willow Warbler</b> and five <b>Starling</b>. Having spent the last couple of days putting in 101 <b>Manx Shearwater</b> study burrows, we now have to number them so that we can look at interesting things such as burrow fidelity. <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/-0GbcgK3SqQo/UiENg3KTzvI/AAAAAAAACKM/cO6w1hsX85g/s1600/DSC_4701.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0GbcgK3SqQo/UiENg3KTzvI/AAAAAAAACKM/cO6w1hsX85g/s640/DSC_4701.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yYnYEzz3G68/UiENsasn68I/AAAAAAAACKU/1I_5b81ZF0A/s1600/DSC_4699.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yYnYEzz3G68/UiENsasn68I/AAAAAAAACKU/1I_5b81ZF0A/s640/DSC_4699.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zC8I_m72g24/UiEN7j-DXDI/AAAAAAAACKc/vdsM0mmP3AY/s1600/DSC_4697.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zC8I_m72g24/UiEN7j-DXDI/AAAAAAAACKc/vdsM0mmP3AY/s640/DSC_4697.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Giselle with our good friend and volunteer Tegan. Manx Shearwater productivity is currently 0.77 chicks per pair and many of these chicks have either fledged or are about to. However this has been calculated using just 77 study burrows. Having well over 150 burrows next year should give us a productivity estimate more representative of the colony. The numbered hatches will allow us to see if the same adults return to the same burrows next year. © Richard Brown<o:p></o:p></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6BzAvwHlxcY/UY6KSmLhwjI/AAAAAAAABDA/ZYu32dto2Rs/s1600/Badger.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6BzAvwHlxcY/UY6KSmLhwjI/AAAAAAAABDA/ZYu32dto2Rs/s200/Badger.png" width="150" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><b style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">Come and stay</b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.welshwildlife.org/islandaccom/staying-on-skokholm/"><span style="color: #741b47; font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif;">http://www.welshwildlife.org/islandaccom/staying-on-skokholm/</span></a></div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div class="MsoNormal">The weather has been fantastic this year and we have thus missed very few changeovers.
