18th July 2015

Weather: WNW force 4/5
The juvenile Black Redstart is still present, ranging down the whole length of the east side of the island (left). Records of Mediterranean Gulls continue with two seen off the island today, and Sandwich Terns continue to increase at their post breeding roost on the east hoyle bank, 410 being counted today with 150 Common Terns also in the area. 

Two Rock Pipits are still to be seen as they have been for many months now, although no young have yet been recorded. Waders returning included 11 Bar-tailed Godwits, 7 Whimbrel, 60 Dunlin, a Turnstone and a Knot.
