1st June 2014

The day started bright and warm with a south-easterly that brought a Sedge Warbler and a female Greenland Wheatear. These stayed all day but the only other migrants were two Swallows and a White Wagtail passing through in the morning and five whimbrel over the tide.

The breeze shifted to the north west in the late morning and cloud built up. Bird activity was otherwise very limited; a drake Common Scoter sat on the rocks after the tide and Meadow Pipits and Linnets fed recently fledged young. Butterflies included a Red Admiral.
