Weather: S force 1/2,increasing SE 3/4
Another late sighting were 2 Swallows which flew south over the obs near midday.
The 10 Eiders are still close to the island, but the Brent were hard to count but certainly over 100 and a Greenshank was heard calling down the west side. Small waders were scarce at high tide but 75 Turnstones were counted and a few Ringed Plovers were seen on the ebb. A female Peregrine caused chaos among the Oystercatchers before landing on the east hoyle beach.
Ringed: 9 Goldcrests, 4 Meadow Pipits, 2 Greenfinches, 1 Willow warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Wren, 1 Redwing, 1 Song Thrush. [ 612-35 ] photos CJ
