Lundy Chicken Observatory: Lundy Chicken Observatory Replace

A mystical spring day to discover the island with shocking stipulations and excellent birds to be discovered! Select of the bunch used to be a Pink-throated Pipit round Punchbowl Valley and Pondsbury. First positioned by way of name and observed in flight at 1435 and once more at 1525. Later, a stonking male Gray-headed Wagtail (Yellow Wagtail thunbergi race) graced St Helen’s Box, following the hoofs of ponies between sessions of chickening out to the juncus.  In different places, 2 Greenland Wheatear once more in Lighthouse Box, Cuckoo Quarter Wall and a skinny motion  of waders totalled 3 Ringed Plover and 8 Dunlin. Despite the fact that hirundine numbers had been down significantly, Swallow outnumbered Space Martin for the primary time in 6 days (with 104 and 51 respectively). Millcombe and the south east copses characteristic twos of Collared DoveWillow and Sedge Warbler. 12 Noticed Flycatcher  remained for every other day and 3 White Wagtail and a feminine flavissima Yellow Wagtail rounds of the typical migrant tally.
