The day started well with the early arrival and capture of a Spotted Flycatcher in the sycamores of the Heli (third record of the spring and a second to be ringed).
A single Sedge Warbler was also caught but the bird of the day was Whitethroat with a couple caught by mid morning, further singles were caught by midday and a fifth was added to the day total early afternoon.
The afternoon brought heavy rain which set in until mid evening.
However, a couple of hours later and sky had cleared the wind had dropped and it was another stunning evening on the island.
Ringing: Spotted Flycatcher, Willow Warbler (2), Chiffchaff (2), Sedge Warbler, Whitethroat (5)
