8th August 2015

Weather: SSW force 1, later N 1
A beautiful sunny day with lots of visitors to the island. As the tide ebbed in the morning at least 3 Arctic Skuas were on the east hoyle making life difficult for the terns. There were no migrants this morning as expected with a clear sky last night. A Common Scoter sat on the calm sea off the west side (right). Only 1 Whimbrel could be found, in contrast to 10 birds present in the week. Dunlin are now here in numbers with an estimated 4,000 today.
