Last Day on Skokholm


Still breezy on Skokholm today but very sunny and warm, this being our last full day on the island.  Some early morning ringing produced a mixture of birds including Manx Shearwater, Herring Gull, Jackdaw and a couple of Rock Pipits.

Plenty of butterflies and day-flying moths on the wing today, with rather more Silver Y moths than we had noticed before.

However despite various walks around the island no obvious new bird migrants were located.
