First day of Passage

Today we saw the first signs of Spring passage on the islands, with at least 4 new goldcrest present 37 meadow pipit and singles of starling, song thrush and snow bunting. The Puffins are also back on the island in their thousands, and one of the places they enjoy hanging out is on top of the Pele Tower, where if you are very quiet you can get great views of them. The Guillemots have also returned to the cliffs in their thousands and are busy displaying.
