30th June 2019

Weather: W force 2
A Magpie was the only unexpected visitor to the island today, although there were 2 passing Swifts. Lepidoptera included 4 Painted lady, 3 Red Admiral, a Silver Y and a Plume moth. Six juveniles were amongst the 200 Black-headed Gulls gathered about the island chain. Nine Shelduck and 2 Little Egrets were on the shore, while sea going species seen were 3 Gannets and 25 Sandwich and 20 Common Terns. A male Kestrel was on the island, but the finest sight is still the Pyramidal orchid flowering.

Ringed: 1 Wren       [568-30 ]
