Weather: W force 0/1 humid and cloudy at first clearing to sunshine
The first small fall of autumn warblers graced the island this morning, namely 9 Willow Warblers, 2 Whitethroats and a Garden Warbler, with another 5 Willow Warblers dropping in just before noon.
Ten Wheatears were mostly on the west side, more than we have seen so far this autumn.
Others on the sea included 5 Guillemots, 14 Common Scoter and about 50 Gannets.
Just after noon as the gutter drained of water the Bonaparte's Gull's favourite feeding place became uncovered and sure enough it arrived on cue to feed and give pleasure of any that had not seen it.
Three Comma butterflies may be a record count for the island.
Ringed: 6 Willow Warblers, 2 Linnets, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Wren. [ 466-31 ]
