2014

First for Lundy

9 Jun – A juvenile was seen perched and in flight in Millcombe walled gardens on 9 Jun (Tim Davis, Tim Jones, Martin Palmer). This is the first substantiated record for Lundy and perhaps one of the most unexpected sightings on the island of recent decades!

2016

New record

30 Sep – One was seen briefly in lower Millcombe (Steve Howells & Tim Pett). After a long wait for the first, the island's second Dipper followed in relatively short order.
