24th August 2016

Weather: WNW force 2
Four Mediterranean Gulls and a Black Tern (this time an adult) were again noted this morning. Considering the westerly wind direction a surprise was a few migrants turning up in the form of a Sedge Warbler, a Willow Warbler, a Whitethroat and 3 Wheatears. Two Rock Pipits are still on the island. Also noted were 171 Redshank, 2100 Knot, 2 Whimbrel, 3 Bar-tailed Godwits, a Shag, a Great Crested Grebe and a Guillemot.
Ringed: 1 Robin                        [ 350-27 ]
