A brisk south-easterly and cloud cover raised hopes again and observers arriving on the island at 7am were not disappointed with stunning views of a Hobby which flew down the east side between the islands and off south over Middle. Unfortunately the photographer couldn't keep up and only a 'record shot' (apologies!) was obtained as it promptly disappeared over the top of Middle.
Groups of Canada Geese and Greylags (8) were seen and a Swift flew over in front of approaching rain.
Another juvenile Meadow Pipit was ringed.
