18th August 2015

Weather: WNW force 4/5
Two Common Snipe were flushed from the east gutter this morning, the first record this autumn. Some of the Swallows seem to have moved on, there were only 5 today feeding around the island. Sandwich Terns just exceeded Common Terns in the roost, 300 to 250 with just a single Little Tern. Forty Sanderling were by the clay pits on the east hoyle, seemingly their favourite location. At least 4 Common Seals hauled out on the west hoyle.
