5th August 2008


A juvenile female Peregrine was resting on the rocks at Little Eye, as the weather deteriorated on the way to the island this morning. A slight drizzle became heavier and seemed to cause a small arrival of Willow Warblers. Five were trapped but at least 13 were seen to be present (no apologies for yet another Willow Warbler photo).
The miserable conditions did not make for good bird recording, nevertheless 19 Swallows were logged passing through and at the north end 3 immature Shags and a pale phase Arctic Skua gave close views. Little tern sightings have been particularly scarce this season and so 2 drifting passed were a welcome bonus.
