29th May 2009

A moderate south-easterly and mist early morning produced a typical late spring migrant in the form of a Spotted Flycatcher caught in the Newton mid morning (see left).

A few House Martin and Swifts passed overhead as did single Redpoll spp and Siskin.

Little Egret danced around in the gutter along with three Grey Herons and good numbers of Ringed Plover (80) and Dunlin (c100) were present.

Painted Ladies were still much in evidence around the islands with at least 25 seen during the morning.
