21st May 2019

Weather: NW force 2,  vis 30 miles
A fine sunny day on the island, sunny and warm but with no migrants. The main attraction were the Dunlin and a few Ringed Plover resting on the main island as a visitor disturbed the birds normally roosting on Middle.

 also a Sanderling
A sea watch only produced a few Sandwich and Common Terns.
A Meadow Pipit and a  Linnet were caught for ringing, the Linnet being the first juvenile of any species ringed this year, and it appears the earliest ever Linnet fledgling ringed in the history of the obs!

 Ringed: 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Linnet.                                 [ 540-30 ]
