A beautiful day weather-wise proved to be a busy bank holiday for island visitors but very quiet on the bird front.
Early morning a Woodpigeon was found feeding on the 'A1' but departed by mid morning. A few more fledgling Meadow Pipits were noted along with a fledgling Rock Pipit.
A gathering of Sandwich Terns on the late afternoon tide saw 42 counted but few Common Terns were seen today.
Waders are still appearing and 2 Whimbrel were seen as the tide turned and a flock of 29 Bar-tailed Godwit roosted over the tide on rocks west of Middle.
The male Common Blue butterfly was noted in the Heli paddock again today and a brief dragonfly flew through the Obs garden but was too quick to be positively identified. Meanwhile a Yellow-tail Moth caterpillar was identified by one of our moth gurus.
