2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">It would have been easy to assume that the <b>Pied Flycatcher</b> feeding around the Farm today was the same bird that had been with us for the previous two days. However the bird this morning lacked a ring. Having caught the new <b>Pied Flycatcher</b>, we were surprised when another unringed bird appeared in the Heligoland. Three birds in two days, all around the Farm and if it were not for ringing no hint that more than one bird was present. Two <b>Tree Pipits</b> were the first of the autumn, a <b>Robin</b> was at the Well, two new <b>Whitethroat </b>were trapped and three <b>Willow Warbler</b>were new in. Wader passage was evident with six <b>Ringed Plover</b>, five <b>Dunlin</b>, a <b>Bar-tailed Godwit</b>, two <b>Whimbrel</b>, 13 <b>Curlew</b>, two <b>Redshank</b>, a <b>Greenshank</b> and four <b>Common Sandpiper</b> recorded. <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://4.bp.blogspot.com/-9d1oHXBD5Oo/UhfUmv3bafI/AAAAAAAACGI/Z7839BQsmXw/s1600/DSC_0013.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-9d1oHXBD5Oo/UhfUmv3bafI/AAAAAAAACGI/Z7839BQsmXw/s640/DSC_0013.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3ByKe_Xc60g/UhfVD7H6a9I/AAAAAAAACGQ/-PIY3xXlKRo/s1600/DSC_0475.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="640" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3ByKe_Xc60g/UhfVD7H6a9I/AAAAAAAACGQ/-PIY3xXlKRo/s640/DSC_0475.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">It is very unusual to have easy access to a Storm Petrel chick.
