A quick stroll under the frantic kittewake colony revealed just two species lurking in the boulders. A singing rock pipit quickly defined its territory even seeing off a lingering wheatear, fascinating how they find these small prey items out of thin air. Nothing else of note, a whitethroat under the castle wall and everywhere you go, goldfinches! They seem as common as ever. Note the red pattern on the head, an obvious female! Also this bird is ringed.
