16th July 2011

A blustery and wet start to the day did not put one observer off and the reward for his effort came straight away with a Yellow-legged Gull found in the gutter on the way on. Between the morning's heavy downpours a trip to the seawatching hide proved very worthwhile when an adult Pomarine Skua flew past the North End. Another sighting of Rock Pipit, this time at the North End of the main island was further evidence of this year's possible breeding attempt.

A couple of Arctic Skuas were also seen during the seawatch.

Later a couple of juvenile Linnets were caught but a young Whitethroat evaded capture (perhaps the bird from midweek).
