Weather: NW force 2 , light drizzle, mist early
Twelve Pink-footed Geese flew over at dawn just as the mist thickened around the islands and the observer did well to find his way. On approach to the main island the fox was seen to flee along the main path, evidence of its presence is seen almost daily but sightings are unusual. Passerines were few, just 2 Song Thrushes, a Blackbird, a Robin, a Rock Pipit and 2 Wrens to keep the magpie company. High tide found 7 Purple Sandpipers roosting at the north end,
and 90 Turnstones resting in Niffy bay before Redshank replaced them.
A Kestrel was about, its been here regularly in the last few weeks.
