14th August 2018

A Common Snipe flew from the main island towards one observer just crossing the lagoon, then swerved and went west – our first of the Autumn. Four Willow Warbler were about the island with one in the obs garden giving little bursts of song. On the sea were 4 Manx Shearwater, 5 Gannet and 2 Arctic Skua, one of them hunting over the West Hoyle Bank. The immature male Eider is still present.

About 200 Sandwich Terns were on the sands east of the Gutter.
