Just back from a wander around Holywell, great to see 10 Common Terns using the island this afternoon. The Short-Eared Owl from Sunday was still about, sitting on one of the posts which surround the main meadow, no sign of the Green Sandpiper.

As I left the gate I caught sight of this Fox amongst the crop, on the tractors tracks, it stood and stared for a few seconds before it was off!

Common Blue

Spotted this little beauty on my way out of Center Parcs yesterday, posed long enough for a few images.

Back on the patch, the past few days have provided some great sightings including, Green Sandpiper, Barn and Short-Eared Owl hunting the main meadow, large numbers of Golden Plover, Tufted Duck with 5 ducklings and at least 6 Common Terns on the pond making use of the newly gravelled island (the most I've ever seen).

Lunga's Puffins

I've been away on the Isle of Mull for a week with the UOC Wildlife Photographer's Society, the weather was kind and we had a brilliant trip. I'm sure Phil has a full account soon to be published, but for now I'll leave you with a few images from our visit to Lunga.
