Birds have been on the move...
I had a Goldcrest in the garden today! other birds around the Isle include Wagtails Pied & White,
a Kestrel, Siskins, Chiffchaff, Brambings, Black Redstart, Bean Geese & even a Puffin or 2 off shore.
|Greylag, Pink-footed & Bean Geese. a real mixed gaggle!|
|How does Henry find these things!|
|Little Cushion Star - Asterina phylactica |
With the very low Spring tides we did some tidepooling of the South Lighthouse.
We found all sorts of things! High lights are... Henry refound 6 of his famous Little Cushion Stars.
6 Sea Hares, 1 sea slugs Limacia clavigera, 1 Sacoglossa Elyia viridis, a Squat Lobster, Hermit Crabs,
& a Long Clawed Porcelain Crab! we have only found one other but that was dead and in the stomach contents of a cod we caught last year.
|Sea Hare - 2cm|
|Nudibranchia - Sea Slug Limacia Clavigera about 1cm|
|The UK's most remote Sports Relief runners on Fair Isle.|
They ran about a mile up hill, from the Puff Inn to the School/Hall parking lot.
Henry & Deryk set a fast pace! but wisdom of age gave in to youth.
