After the promise of more cold winds and low temperatures I though today would be a none event – how wrong was I!
Brownsman to Longstone view action flowerfied
Sun shing through my window begged a pre breakfast bird, so I emerged to find Ciaran and Grame recanting tlaes of the female Merlin and Med Gull I’d just missed. A quick lap of Inner Farne produced a few birds, Meadow Pipits, Goldeneye and more missed birds in the form of Red-necked Grebe see flying north by Jamie.
Sprucing of the islands facilities continued and inevitably required a Brownsman trip so off we went scoring Chaffinch and Small Tortoiseshell before hitting Staple.
After doing some shag ring reading we returned to Inner Farne where after a beautiful sunset a 1st summer Iceland Gull showed well in the roost marking the end to another day of paradise and birds!
