28th May 2015

Weather: W force 6/7
The strong wind this morning meant a sea watch was the order of the day. Manx Shearwaters (10), and Gannets (95), were the main species battling the wind with a few terns also logged. Five House Martins passed through going west but little else could be classed as a migrant.

 In contrast to recent days there were more Ringed Plover to be seen than Dunlin (above), it may have been something to do with the state of the tide. The unringed Rock Pipit was at the north east corner of Middle.
Four Little Egrets today (right), that is about the average over the last few weeks.
