Sark Watch in Action
Members of Sark Watch, the island’s junior wildlife group, recently spent the afternoon in search of birds on the Eperquerie Common, the northern tip of Sark and a great place for all sorts of wildlife. Led by wildlife artist Rosie Guille, the group spent time looking on the shore, out to sea and on the undisturbed land of the Common and were well rewarded by their patience. They spotted a razorbill feeding in Fontaine Bay and crows, ravens, shags and greater and lesser black-back gulls in flight over the sea. The undergrowth was alive with the song of black birds and wrens warming up for spring and the highlight of the day was the sight of a buzzard soaring along the cliffs. And it didn’t rain!
