10th August 2016

Weather: NW force 3
Two small highlights in a basically quiet morning were the finding of a single Willow Warbler in the paddocks and the passage of a Tree Pipit calling over the island. An Arctic Skua flew slowly west along the tide edge at low tide barely disturbing the Sandwich Tern roost of some 500 or so birds.

A little time was spent looking at the various plants on the island, most of which are now past their best.
