2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A rather overcast day saw the first <b>Pied Flycatcher</b> of the year arrive to Skokholm. However it was pretty much travelling alone, with just a <b>Song Thrush</b>, a <b>Whitethroat</b>, a <b>Chiffchaff </b>and a <b>Willow Warbler </b>the other migrants noted. Seawatching was relatively quiet, although two <b>Great Skuas</b> this morning was the first time that we have had more than one in 24 hours this year. <b>Manx Shearwater</b> numbers picked up this evening, reaching ten per second past the Lighthouse and a minimum of 20500 recorded. The <b>Water Rail</b> was calling again at the Well and a <b>Whimbrel</b>and two <b>Curlew </b>lingered. The Island staff were yet again in North Pond, fantasising about the American waders that will benefit from our exertions.<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/-D15HRhioR-o/UhUwtlJTQwI/AAAAAAAACFQ/88RIwh5zHQ4/s1600/DSC_4561.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-D15HRhioR-o/UhUwtlJTQwI/AAAAAAAACFQ/88RIwh5zHQ4/s640/DSC_4561.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">The first Pied Flycatcher of 2013 and the first since the 22nd of August 2012.
