Last chance to see.....

The boat stops running to Skomer on Saturday October 31st so the next few days will be your last chance to visit the island until April 2010.

There have been plenty of migrants passing through this week, the highlight being a Richards' Pipit on the 26th.

Others seen this week include Common Scoter, Mediterranean Gull, Common Gull, Fulmar, Guillemots and Razorbills, Hen Harrier, Merlin, Peregrine, lots of Kestrels and Buzzards, Golden Plover, Snipe, Curlew, Turnstone, Barn Owl, Little Owl, Short-eared Owl, lots of Black Redstarts, Fieldfares, Song Thrush, Redwings, a Mistle Thrush, the last few Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest, Brambling, Siskin, Linnet, Redpoll and lots of Reed Buntings. So plenty to see!

The Seals and their pups continue to delight, there are two pups on our boat slipway which makes a great spot to sit and watch them for a while.

We have been seeing groups of Porpoise feeding around the island every day and a handful of Common Dolphins have also been seen this week.
