The Flying Barn Door!

Highlight of the day.......and indeed the year so far was this magnificent White-tailed Eagle found by Jack on North census. An immature bird sporting turquoise wing tags with a white No. 8, it soared across the isle from west to east and back again, all the while being harassed by Bonxies, gulls and Ravens. If you thought Bonxies were big birds, it absolutely dwarfed them! There are c800 Pinkfeet still present this evening and a Black Redstart at the Obs was the only noteable passerine.

The other noteworthy sighting was that of the islander plane - once in the morning and again in the afternoon! It brought in the local Conservative Party candidate but the least said about him the better!
