Skokholm revisited

The turn of adult Manxies today, Wendy with one of the 30+ ringed from their burrows...we are trying to ring 100 adults in this study plot.

Alice doing a great job with the admin, whilst a Manxie copies a Puffin in attempting to bite me.

Part of the Puffin colony only minutes after we had finished.... we did successfully colour-ring the remaining 30 Puffins today, all the Manxies and Puffin work carried out for EGI (Oxford Univ.)
Jerry - Skokholm warden has resightings of 60+ of the c120 Colour-ringed Puffins so far.

I guess the final sea-bird ringing trip of the season....?

The group today not only from the Teifi RG and Pembs RG, but also Ian and Cedwyn from the Gower RG....Note the major rarity North of the Cleddau in the form of John Hayes !!
Delighted to see you John.
