Little winged wizard

The Little Winged Wizard...Merlin back for the autumn

Wednesday 29th August comments: A very mixed day on the islands today as the wind continued to blow with added rain showers which resulted in very few people venturing out (and I couldn't blame them). On the bird front, our Greenish Warbler finally departed overnight after a three day stay (gone but not forgotten), although some new arrivals brightened up the day including our first autumn Merlin alongside a scattering of common migrants including two Pied Flycatchers.

Tomorrow will see yet more change, as strong Northerly winds are forecast, so seawatching could be productive and we celebrate yet another rangers birthday...but you'll have to tune in tomorrow to find out what has happened...bring it on!
