12th July 2014

Weather: SE 2, 0/8, moderate to good vis

A Kestrel made an appearance around the islands today but was the sole raptor seen.

A couple of Swift provided evidence of a little movement and the Whitethroat was caught and ringed.

Terns were represented by 250 Sandwich, 24 Common and 2 Little and waders by 50 Curlew, 2 Whimbrel, 2 Redshank, 1,500 Oystercatcher and a single summer plumaged Knot.

Butterflies were again in evidence on a hot day with temperatures touching 21.4 degrees C with small numbers if the commoner species noted.
