8th June 2014

Weather:  SSE 5-6, backing SW, overcast, good visibility

A stunning morning weather wise had observers heading out with tools though rather than any great anticipation (although with other larger well-known Irish Sea islands scoring with good birds over the last couple of days you never know your luck).

The local breeding birds were much in evidence with a flock of 12 Linnets roaming the island and a nest of Meadow Pipit pullus were ringed.

During the afternoon a few Swifts passed over as the clouds darkened and threatened overhead but rain never materialised which meant that repair works to the Heli trap could start before the autumn migration gets under way!
