Topic - Any Birdwatchers on UKC?

drunken monkey - on 04 Jul 2013
I've just come back from offshore this afternoon. Was out visiting an unmanned satellite Gas Platform in the Southern North Sea.

Pretty sure I saw one of these on the platform. It seemed to have set up home on the helideck. Kept coming back to see us all day.

Just looked on the RSPB website and they are in some kind of Red list.

Red list criteria
Globally threatened
Historical population decline in UK during 18001995
Severe (at least 50%) decline in UK breeding population over last 25 years, or longer-term period (the entire period used for assessments since the first BoCC review, starting in 1969).
Severe (at least 50%) contraction of UK breeding range over last 25 years, or the longer-term period
