2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">Overnight drizzle gave way to a beautiful sunny day but with a brisk northerly which kept birds skulking frustratingly low. Nevertheless a fine variety of migrants were recorded. A Minimum of four <b>Tree Pipits</b> were vocal along the Lighthouse Track, a <b>Yellow Wagtail</b> flew over the Well, 37 <i>alba</i> wagtails included a minimum of 31 <b>Pied Wagtail</b> and two <b>White Wagtail</b>, two <b>Robin</b> included one on the wave crashed rocks of Crab Bay, two <b>Reed Warbler</b> included one out on the North Coast Bluffs, a <b>Garden Warbler</b>at the Well was the first of the autumn, a <b>Whitethroat </b>was at the Farm with a minimum of seven <b>Willow Warbler</b>, a <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b> was trapped and a <b>Sand Martin </b>went over. A <b>Grey Heron</b>was the first for a few days, as was a male <b>Kestrel</b>. A <b>Dunlin</b>, two <b>Whimbrel</b>, five <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Redshank</b> and two <b>Common Sandpiper</b> were the waders. Two <b>Clouded Yellow</b>butterflies were the first of the autumn in what seems to be a busy period for this species nationally and a <b>Hummingbird Hawkmoth</b> was at the Farm. Much of the afternoon was spent continuing the North Pond wader scrapes, although we still had time to establish the ‘Skokholm August What Bird Challenge 2013’ which is basically a sweepstake as to the scarcest bird to be recorded before the Friday boat. Bets are secret but we will reveal the results on Thursday night. <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/-foUYGsrwRkI/Uhp7d1CX1zI/AAAAAAAACG4/EWpwkK0dSNI/s1600/IMG_5481.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="428" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-foUYGsrwRkI/Uhp7d1CX1zI/AAAAAAAACG4/EWpwkK0dSNI/s640/IMG_5481.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Four Tree Pipits in one day is the highest count since the first of September 2011.
