2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A beautifully calm day saw few surprises bird-wise, although there was still a bit of diversity and there was always the feeling that something scarcer was lurking. A female <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a male <b>Kestrel</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, two <b>Snipe</b>, a <b>Whimbrel</b>, 18 <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Common Sandpiper</b>, four <b>Turnstone</b>, a juvenile <b>Cuckoo</b>, two <b>Yellow Wagtail</b>, 52 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b> including 23 <b>White Wagtail</b>, three <b>Robin</b>, a <b>Whinchat</b>, 12 <b>Wheatear</b>, a <b>Song Thrush</b>, eight <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, a <b>Reed Warbler</b>, a <b>Whitethroat</b>, five <b>Willow Warbler</b>, a <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> and five <b>Starling</b> were logged. After a few days of distant dolphin sightings, six <b>Common Dolphin</b> showed well in Broad Sound. Another evening of <b>Storm Petrel</b> ringing saw 19 more birds trapped along with a retrap from earlier in the year. <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/-lxAIM-23a8s/Uh-_GZJAfmI/AAAAAAAACJs/WG6rr3p_MJA/s1600/DSC_0194.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-lxAIM-23a8s/Uh-_GZJAfmI/AAAAAAAACJs/WG6rr3p_MJA/s640/DSC_0194.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The first Storm Petrel chick we found is putting on weight at an impressive rate.
