10th August 2015

Weather: SE force 2, heavy squall 08.30hrs.
A small fall of warblers occurred this morning, 15 Willows and 3 Chiffchaffs (first of the autumn), but no Wheatears nor any other of the larger warblers. Thirty one Turnstones gathered at the north end, also recorded were 6 Whimbrel and 35 Ringed Plover, while a dark phase Arctic Skua  and a juvenile Shag were the only significant sightings on the sea. Groups of 12, 8 and 11 Shelduck flew south during the morning, and a female Peregrine was at Little Eye. A Red fox cub was seen, calmly washing itself at only 20 yards distance from one lucky observer for about 20 minutes.
