No phylloscopus warblers or Wheatears today, and just a single Goldcrest but plenty others birds of interest including 2 Grey, 2 Pied and 7 White Wagtails, 7 Swallows, 10 Goldfinch, a Redpoll and a House Sparrow. At 09.15 hrs a Lapland Bunting flew up from the Little Eye area and headed north towards the other islands but unfortunately it could not be re-found despite an extensive search. A female Sparrowhawk was seen to fly west from the island towards Wales (right) and later 2 Buzzards were also seen, this time at long distance from the island, over Hoylake in fact !
