2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A damp and overcast morning soon cleared to leave another beautiful day. Although there were fewer birds around we still logged a <b>Grey Heron</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, a <b>Dunlin</b>, two <b>Snipe</b>, a <b>Whimbrel</b>, three <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Redshank</b>, a <b>Common Sandpiper</b>, four <b>Turnstone</b>, two <b>Black-headed Gull</b>, a <b>Guillemot</b>, a juvenile <b>Cuckoo</b>, a <b>Sand Martin</b>, three <b>Yellow Wagtail</b>, 70 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b> including 33 <b>White Wagtail</b>, two <b>Robin</b>, 12 <b>Wheatear</b>, a <b>Song Thrush</b>, seven <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, a <b>Reed Warbler</b>, two <b>Whitethroat</b>, six <b>Willow Warbler</b> and five <b>Starling</b>. We spent several hours today locating and renovating the <b>Storm Petrel</b> nest boxes hidden at various points around the Island. Several had totally filled with soil, the result of many years of ant activities and wind blow. However three contained chicks! This will provide a fantastic opportunity to monitor their development, something rarely studied of late. The <b>Storm Petrel</b> chick closest to the Farm, which weighed 20.8g two days ago, has put on 6.4g. <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://1.bp.blogspot.com/-c55fLHHY0Y0/Uh0T9zm6arI/AAAAAAAACIY/Pew8SPGy9rs/s1600/pal+shadow.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-c55fLHHY0Y0/Uh0T9zm6arI/AAAAAAAACIY/Pew8SPGy9rs/s640/pal+shadow.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">We were joined over the weekend by Lucy, Chris and their very special friend Pal.
