It was a beautiful day today which feels really nice to say. The Islands were buzzing with activity today, with birds flying around, grooming themselves, preparing their nests, mating and when you have weather like today it makes it even more special.
We saw lots of Purple Sandpipers and Turnstones today which is really nice to see. We also saw a Robin, a Wheater, 3 Rock Pipits and on the Inner Farne we saw 2 Little Terns and 2 Roseate Terns which was the highlight of the day. I don’t have any pictures of the Roseate Terns so I have put them on the top of my hit list this year. I do hope they stay and increase in numbers, as they might breed, and that would be great news for the Farne Islands.
I do hope this weather continues but I’m not very confident that it will, but for the moment I’m enjoying it as much as I can.
