Census was busy with the Subalpine Warbler making it onto the count near Quarter Wall/Quarry Cottages (no sign since), as well as the Nightingale that was caught this morning in Millcombe plus all our other wonderful island birds currently up to Quarter Wall. Counts from our seabird station/productivity assessments and census resulted over 3000+ Guillemots, 500+ Razorbills and 300+ Puffins recorded today (specific counts by the Conservation Team to be added soon).


A short session resulted in Golden Oriole and Nightingale caught in a meagre 7 birds.
