29th August 2018

Weather:SW force 1, light rain
Once again the Bonaparte's Gull was present early also a Mediterranean Gull, but the island was generally quiet. Swallows were here in good numbers again, 85 today but very few other migrants. A single Willow Warbler was about and the first passage Robin of the autumn was ringed, a first year bird.
 also a Meadow Pipit.

The Eider stayed with us again, and the usual waders included 3 Bar-tailed Godwit and 3 Whimbrel, while tern numbers seemed to be down.
Ringed: 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Robin, 2 Linnets       [ 475-31 ]
