Ringed Necked Parakeet

A cold WNW wind, but sunshine all day again (having said that, the sun set at 16:05!)

Ring Necked Parakeet east over shops by Knowlys road yesterday per Dominic Green 

South Shore 
Wigeon 150+
Shelduck 6

Rock Pipit 5 - 1 on saltmarsh, 1 on Red Nab, 2 on the sea wall and 1 near the waterfall. These are the two along the sea wall. They have been feeding together like this since the lighthouse nesting pair fledged one young last year. I have always thought of them as the female and young from that nest. But that is speculation based only on apparent continuity of behaviour, there is no way of knowing. (MD)
