Skomers run of good birds continues with light easterlies again producing the goods. After yesterdays Icterine Warbler (12th record for Skomer) the last thing we expected today was the similar, but geographically separated, Melodious Warbler (also the 12th record for Skomer), but that is indeed what we found near the farm at 09.00. This, however, was probably eclipsed by a Kingfisher (6th record for Skomer) that whizzed through North Haven as afternoon boats were leaving. Other good birds seen today were Tree Pipit, two Pied Flycatchers and a Wryneck. Full List on right.
