Icterine Warbler and other wildlife highlights / Skokholm on the TV tomorrow

Wildlife highlights:

Icterine Warbler in the ivy above the boat shed in Nort Haven. Not been spotted for a few days. But a lot of the bushes are having willow warblers and whitethroats, etc. With these strong South Easterly winds forecast over the next few days we are not sure what might turn up, so well worth keeping your eyes on the bushes!

Other sightings:

Couple of spotted and pied flycatchers, tow green sandpipers on north pond (thanks Dave B)

Fair few seal pups have now been born around the neck area. One pup being nicely visible from Captain Kites (ask one of the wardens who greet you on the island).

Other exciting events - Myself and Jerry went over to Skokholm today to do a piece for BBC News Wales. The article was just about how things are getting on with Skokholm in a bid to raise the interest of the island. This will be shown tomorrow night (Thursday 2nd September) and is a good way of people keeping up to speed with the developments.

Lets hope for some rare birds. We shall let you know on the blog of anything turns up.

Skomer Warden
