More evidence of wader passage was observed today with a single Whimbrel and 28 Curlew seen but also a single summer plumaged Turnstone came 'in off' the sea to the North End from the North West. The first seen since 6th June on the islands.
A Common Sandpiper was also at the North End.
As well as 400 Black-headed Gulls, 3 Common Gulls were recorded and tern numbers increase slightly with 25 Common and 50 Sandwich.
A couple of Pied Wagtails were recorded and 27 Swifts passed over the islands.
The highlight of the day was a party of five Ravens sat on the East Hoyle sand bank opposite the Obs feeding on a dead Common Scoter.
