Sightings 2015

The dry winter continues in the new year, with only a small spell of rains on the 16th Jan associated with the arrival of a cold front, leaving colder conditions.

Single Griffon Vulture & Sparrowhawk have ready been seen arriving from the strait, as well as Black Redstarts which are now beginning to move north slowly.

Seabird-wise, Kittawake made an appearance on the 16th, together with the usual YLGulls, Sandwich Tern, Cormorants, Med Shag, Gannet, Balearic Shearwater, Great Skua, Med, BH & Audouin's Gull, as well as a few sightings on Common Scoter
