24th July 2015

Weather: SE force 1

A Greenshank was between the islands this morning and a Merlin flew east. A Woodpigeon was also a visitor for a short time. Two early autumn Goldcrests were on the island and 7 Swifts passed through.

Three Arctic Skuas harassed the Sandwich terns and good wader counts were made of 11 Whimbrel, 13 Bar-tailed Godwits,320 Curlew, 560 Sanderling, 600 Dunlin and 14 Turnstone.

The Rock Sea Lavender is creating a lovely carpet of colour down the west side at the moment.
