3rd June 2009

A single Willow Warbler was a rather late record for the island. An excellent count of 207 Swifts was more in keeping with early June. 7 Little Egrets was a slight increase on recent numbers and a prospecting Fulmar spent some time flying up and down the West side cliffs - again not an unknown phenomenon at this time of year.

The coverage by observers remains good despite the lack of birds - perhaps "the big one" is just around the corner...
