27th September 2015

Weather: SE force 2/3
The wind is in the south east at last and immediately brought in 5 Chiffchaffs (right), a Blackcap, a few
Goldcrests, 2 Blackbirds, 2 Grey Wagtails and the first 3 Skylarks of the autumn. A Common Snipe was about early on and later a Great Northern Diver and a drake Eider flew passed the island (below). Thirty two Sandwich Terns were a good amount for so late in the autumn, other sea birds included 4 Gannets and 4 Common Scoter.

 Ringed: 4 Chiffchaffs, 1 Blackbird       [ 452-35 ]
