A much quieter day, after 34 Willow Warblers yesterday, none today showing what a suble change in the weather can do. A Sedge Warbler was the only bird ringed,
Five Little Egrets were noted and at least 5 Eiders were present,
and highlights on the sea were 4 Arctic Terns, 22 Gannets, and a dark phase Arctic Skua, while best of the waders were 296 Sanderling and 9 Whimbrel. The seals were resting on the west hoyle bank as usual.
On the breeding front, the Swallows are feeding nicely....
