Bobolink on Skomer - No sailings tomorrow (likely)

A keen eyed Dave Boyle spotted a brown North American Passerine in North Stream Crossing today - called a Bobolink. I caught up with it only to catch it in flight and very briefly.

The bird has not been seen since.

For anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of the migrant, this will be tricky. The strong Easterly winds have meant that no boats have landed today. It is very unlikely that boats will be running tomorrow. However an update will be given on Pembrokeshire Bird Blog tomorrow morning.
