Lundy Chook Observatory: Lundy Chook Observatory Replace


A magical spring day to discover the island with beautiful circumstances and good birds to be discovered! Choose of the bunch was a Pink-throated Pipit round Punchbowl Valley and Pondsbury. First positioned by name and seen in flight at 1435 and once more at 1525. Later, a stonking male Gray-headed Wagtail (Yellow Wagtail thunbergi race) graced St Helen’s Area, following the hoofs of ponies between durations of retreating to the juncus.  Elsewhere, 2 Greenland Wheatear once more in Lighthouse Area, Cuckoo Quarter Wall and a skinny motion  of waders totalled 3 Ringed Plover and 8 Dunlin. Though hirundine numbers have been down significantly, Swallow outnumbered Home 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 an additional day and three White Wagtail and a feminine flavissima Yellow Wagtail rounds of the widespread migrant tally.
