This morning’s Swallow roost in Niffy Bay had 58 birds, at least 2 of the local pairs have laid a second clutch.
Five Willow Warbler (below) were about the main island and the second ‘Autumn’ Sedge Warbler soon joined them.

 Glasswort is present this year at both the north and south ends of the island.
