30th September 2009

A freshening westerly once again meant hardly any migrants. However, a single Wheatear and a few Grey and Alba Wagtails passed through, but still no Goldcrests...

A Peregrine hunted the islands and no doubt was responsible for flushing several flocks of Knot during the morning (see photo left).

Once again a solitary Little Egret stalked the gutter but the bird of the day was a single dark phase Arctic Skua which was hanging around the shore (see photo below).

(DB, CJW) No ringing unsurprisingly. Photos CJW including another shot of the Pink-feet flock from last Friday (see 25th September 2009).
