The first island count of the season was conducted on 14 September by Low Isles Caretakers and volunteers from Low Isles Preservation Society. Their total count was 2,433. Thanks to Wayne and Jenni, Deb, Julie, Andrew, Sophie and Harrison.
The count was on the low side, leaving us wondering whether many of the usual flock might be a bit late in returning this year?
For the first time the Low Isles team recorded their data directly onto ipads that Wayne and Jenni had set up for the purpose. Congratulations on a world-first innovation! Of course meaning world-first for PIP counting :)
