Brent numbers double!

Awful news from Fair Isle Bird Observatory which has been burnt to the ground today, fortunately everyone has been accounted for and safe.  Hopefully it can be rebuilt during the course of this year.

43 Pale-bellied Brent Geese today in two gangs but all together on Red Nab for a short time

Kittiwake - 52 out in dribs and drabs with about half of them 2cy - some came into the harbour

Knot - at least 7 colour marked birds, four of them successfully read.  A great year for reading rings in the Heysham area this year thanks to Richard, Jean and Malcolm
