16th July 2014

Weather:- SE 2, later SSW 3/4, thunder at 08.00hrs
A Swift flew west, as did 4 Sand Martins (the first this autumn). An early returning Bar-tailed Godwit was in brilliant summer plumage on the shore, while 70 Curlew flew west and 2 Little Egrets were logged. Evidence of breeding was everywhere, with Blackbirds carrying food and young Linnets and Dunnocks about the island.
