21st June 2016

Weather: S force 1, later W force 3 , mainly sunny and warm
A quiet day on the island produced little to excite the observers, although again there was a feeding flock on the sea to the north that comprised about 50 Gannets and a couple of hundred terns, both Sandwich and Common joining with gulls to take advantage of the unseen food source that lasted most of the high tide. A Rock Pipit showed today for the first time in the last few visits as did a Peregrine that sat on the sands of the east Hoyle after the tide.
