Skokholm at last!

Hello

Yesterday (Tuesday), and the gathering of Northants Ringing Group members in Pembrokeshire continued as we failed to yet again reach Skokholm Island due to adverse conditions. Nevertheless we made the best of it and combed the coastline around Dale, Marloes and beyond to find a variety of birds and other wildlife.

The strong winds caused a number of feeding sea-birds to pass close to Wooltack Point near to Marloes, as joined by a couple of Harbour Porpoise.

Afternoon sunshine brought forth dragonflies and damselflies and the butterflies included Painted Lady, Wall Brown and Grayling.

Today (Wednesday) and we managed to finally boat over to Skokholm and begin our expedition proper.

Regards
