Beautiful day on October 28, the moderate wind all day reduced the effectiveness of the nets and our catch report is low with only 8 bandings and 1 control.
Our stay ending, we took advantage of the afternoon to do some observation. For the first time, we observed 3 harbour porpoises. Waxwings are always present on the island with a minimum of 5 individuals. Again the rough-legged buzzard hunts in front of the house and the sparrohawks also put on a show.
About 300 herring gulls, about fifteen sea gulls around the island, and a personnal record number of 90 eiders.
