First Goldcrest of the autumn
Visitors enjoying views down to one metre of the bird!
Wednesday 22nd August comments: It’s been another pleasant day on the islands with the sun shining (although we did get a very brief and heavy rain shower) as the islands continue there good run of weather form. A reminder that autumn is kicking in, came in the form of a Goldcrest on Inner Farne, which showed extremely well to visitors (down to a few metres at times). The smallest bird in Britain migrate from Scandinavia during the autumn and this bird was fresh in. With the winds potentially switching back to the south-east next week, we could have a few more to report...gingers crossed.
