Godin 1st June 2006

 

Finally got there – only 17 days late (from first target date). Visit by Catherine, Chris Mourant and me. Taken by Robbie. 28 Cormorants ringed. Good visit – with most birds ringed. Only two nests with eggs or chicks too small. A few too large to ring.  
 
Shag very late and reduced in number from previous year. Only seven chicks ringed. Again broods of two in the main (with some singletons).
 
Guillemots looked healthier than L’Etac de Serk with usual numbers and lots of eggs and a few small chicks.
 
Great Black-backed Gulls on eggs or tiny young (with at least 6 dead tiny chicks).
