30th August 2012

With the wind in the north west no migrants in the trapping areas but 6 Wheatears stayed the tide on the island. A force 6 or 7 in the morning encouraged sea watchers to produce a list for the log as follows:- 100 + Gannets, 6 Great Crested Grebes, 3 Manx Shearwaters, 3 Guillemots, 4 Common Scoter, 3 Arctic Skuas, 1 immature Kittiwake, 150 Sandwich Tern, 70 Common Tern and 1 Red-breasted Merganser. The strength of the wind subsided by noon and shorebirds recorded were mainly the usual species including 2 thousand Oystercatchers, 20 Ringed Plover, 2 Sanderling, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits.
