Lundy Trip

Good numbers of Manx Shearwaters on both ferry crossings and the usual numbers of all three Auks. Gannets, Fulmar and Kittiwake a bit thin generally. The round island trip had us seeing hundreds of Guillemots and Razorbills and plenty of Puffins - mostly on the cliffs and on the water around Jenny's cove. 2 Peregrine.

On the island Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff plus a few Spotted Flycatcher in Milcombe, 4 smart Yellow Wagtails 2m, 1f and one Blue-headed in Barton Field with the sheep - Tree Pipit and a few Sika Deer n the centre of the island and the usual Meadow Pipits, Linnets Skylarks Wheatears and Stonechat scattered about. Biggest surprise was a female Mandarin Duck (new to Lundy) on rocks by the jetty as we left! A few Common Dolphin and a lone Porpoise on the way back.
