18th June 2018

Weather: WNW force 5 decreasing slowly
 From the moth trap last night: Peppered moth and Buff Arches, both relatively common but scarce on this small island.

In the morning a Swift flew briefly around sheltered by the east cliffs.
The high tide in the middle of the afternoon produced 2 Manx Shearwaters and 2 Arctic Skuas, also 44 Gannets and 11 Guillemot.
The immature Eider appeared as the tide came in.

Ringed: 2 Linnets, 1 Meadow Pipit.                    [ 407-28 ]
