Thursday 16th February 2017


It's getting light to early in the morning these days with 2,060 Cormorants counted going out to sea fishing heading over the car park from 0645 to 0655hrs just as I arrived on site. A Guillemot paddled past the point on this mornings walkabout was characteristically still in winter plumage whereas those around the breeding colonies in England at the moment are in full breeding plumage suggesting that those wintering around here are possibly not English stock. A Skylark calling over the site just before this blog was written was today's migrant of a species that is one of the first to return to their breeding grounds in the spring (unfortunately Skylark has not nested at Landguard this century).
