Update


The International Space Station has showed well over the island the last couple of days. We could also see the transporter following it on Saturday. The meteor shower has been impressive too.


Great Black-backed Gulls numbers are building with over 200 seen on Rona roosting together




The top two pictures are of a Grey Chi Moth. We catch these charming creatures rarely on the island. The bottom picture is of a Herald. This is only the third record for the island. This was spotted in the bird  store observatory shed.


The last of the researchers Pufflings is being weighed daily. Still plenty of sprats coming in with the adults and Pufflings have been found behind the washing machine and in the tool shed this week.



The Lowlighters have been ringing Fulmar Chicks this week. At the time of writing 95 of these fluff balls have been ringed.
