25th July 2010

With the wind back in the west, land migrants were non-existent and ringing was restricted today to some young Meadow Pipits that bred on the island (left). Quite a strong blow at high tide produced about 150 Gannets, 2 Common Scoters, 2 Common Terns and 2 Arctic Skuas, with a few hundred Sandwich Terns still present with young being fed. Two Yellow -legged Gulls were a good find for the day, more regular birds present were Turnstones (c.30,right), Whimbrel (5), Dunlin (60) and some Shags.
Ringed:- 3 Meadow Pipits.
