A shag on Fluke Street - the island through a birds eyes.
Even the gannets that don't breed or use the island have set patterns. They never fly over the island but around it and it is actually island lore that something bad will happen if a gannet is seen over the island. So when you next visit the island or anywhere else for that matter why not try to view it through the eyes of a bird, just pick a species and then imagine the island as it would have to fit in with their requirements.
P.S. And typically, just before I was going to post this we have just found a guillemot in the vege garden, stuck in the rabbit fenced area and unable to fly out....now that really was way, way off course but not many people can have one for their garden list !
