2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A glorious sunny day saw the first <b>Reed Warbler</b> and <b>Sparrowhawk</b>records this autumn, along with a <b>Ringed Plover</b>, a <b>Dunlin</b>, two <b>Whimbrel</b>, 26 <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Redshank</b>, two <b>Tree Pipits</b> including one flying in off the sea this afternoon, a new <b>Robin</b>, a <b>Redstart</b>, eight <b>Sedge Warbler</b> including two with substantial fat deposits indicative of migrants, three <b>Whitethroat</b>, five <b>Willow Warbler</b> and yet another new <b>Pied Flycatcher</b>. Amazingly, if it were not for the fact that we have ringed each of the four <b>Pied Flycatcher</b> seen in the past four days, we would have assumed that all the records referred to the same single individual. Seven <b>Cormorant</b>heading south was the largest flock of the autumn and there were 57 <b>Kittiwake </b>off the Lighthouse, although sadly only one of these was a young bird. <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/-_E8B43pMivA/UhkoVtiqS1I/AAAAAAAACGg/tHfq6ONtG8Y/s1600/DSC_0038.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_E8B43pMivA/UhkoVtiqS1I/AAAAAAAACGg/tHfq6ONtG8Y/s640/DSC_0038.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The first Skokholm record of Reed Warbler was not until 1947 and there were surprisingly only five records in the next 20 years (despite intensive ringing activities). However they have been nearly annual since 1968, although with only around five records a year on average. There were seven bird days this spring involving at least four individual birds.
