Our seabird productivity surveys have been very busy recently so we apologise for the lack of updates recently. However, the we can confirm the Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Puffins and Fulmar seem to be having a good breeding season so far.

Other sightings today included the return of the female Blue-headed Wagtail with the male Yellow Wagtail in Barton’s Field. We have not seen them around for a while so we hope they have been hanging around unseen for the past few days. Also, an unidentified wader species was seen by a member of staff, our thinking is a Green Sandpiper but we are not 100% sure.
