Although very quiet for migrants in June, we were able to help with the long term seabird projects.
Just a brief summary of the work here but for a more in depth look at the daily work on the island follow the excellent Skokholm blog which is updated daily.
Juvenile Wheatear were appearing in increasing numbers during the week and we ringed a few from the 13 pairs. This one was along the track to the light house.
A visit to Skokholm a week earlier last year was busy with ringing Oystercatcher chicks. This year they are later and we only ringed one, though many more will be produced from the 40 pairs.
Ringers and non- ringers are welcome to stay on Skokholm. Further details here..
The Skokholm annual report is well worth a read for a detailed insight into the work on the island.
