Weather: NW 3
A Merlin was still present this morning, flying passed the east side of the obs and landing on the south end. Four Pied Wagtails travelling west were the only migrants, with the single male still prospecting the buildings as it has for a few days now. High tide found 4 Shelduck between the islands and 2 Scoter resting just off the obs. Off the north end were 3 Great Crested Grebes and 2 Red-breasted Mergansers flying east. Ten Meadow Pipits and 7 Linnets were probably all local birds.
