20th June 2009

Not much to report this last week as the breeding birds start to show what they have been up to, the first Shelduck ducklings have left the island but the Swallow nest still only has eggs, the weather will need to stay suitable for plenty of insects if the young are to be successful.
Best sighting today was of 2 dark phase Arctic Skuas on the sea, hopefully the first of many with the late summer and autumn to come.
(JE, also DB in the week)
