25th October 2015

A beautiful autumn day on the island but unfortunately no grounded migrants. Highlights were a Whooper Swan that flew in off the sea from the North East and over the Obs before heading across to North Wales (above). Small parties of Skylarks passed overhead and also moved towards Wales. Good numbers of waders were seen with the autumns first Purple Sandpiper being found feeding with Turnstones on the 'whaleback' as the tide continued to drop.
