Early start?

Early start - Shag on nest

Impressive crest!

Lots of Shags but nothing much else

Thursday 15th March comments: It's been a very mild start to March and the settled weather continues as flat seas and sunny conditions enticed me out to the islands for a brief check of the Farnes. The visit brought a scattering of Puffins and Razorbills (although Guillemots were not present) whilst kittiwakes remain in small numbers. However a good number of Shags have built large nest structures and it appears where heading for another early start to the season (mirroring the previous two seasons). The ranger team return to the islands next week and then I'll be bringing you regular updates of the breeding season.

Highlights: Gadwall pair in the kettle off Inner Farne (scarce visitor to Farnes), Barnacle Goose 6N, Canada Goose pair on Inner Farne, Peregrine female, Lapwing 1 by pond, Skylark 1 over, Robin 3, Wren 3, Blackbird 1 and Goldcrest 2 (early migrants).
