Everything was back down to earth today as there was no sign of yesterday's Blyth's Reed Warbler. In fact, despite the hopeful light south-easterly breeze the previous evening, the wind had turned back to the west overnight and the island was decidedly cold and there was not a single grounded migrant.
Once again focus turned to the breeding birds and a single juvenile Meadow Pipit was caught and ringed. The Swallows were present around the North End and the male Pied Wagtail continued to feed the solitary fledged juvenile in Niffy Bay.
A single Little Egret landed in 'Egret Flash' to feed before the tide but other than that it was very quiet - as one normally expects at this time of year...!
