24th May 2009

A quick early visit before the tide felt like summer from the outset especially when a Painted Lady butterfly landed on the thrift near the north end (left), although the continued appearance of an exceptionally late Pale-bellied Brent (below) flying in circles around the sea made a strange seasonal contrast in the warm sunshine. Two Wheatears and a Collared Dove were on middle and a single Wheatear on the main island (left), with just a few Swallows gliding through.

As expected in this clear weather of late spring there were no passage finches or warblers to be seen.
