27th August 2019

Weather:  NW 1, 2/8 cloud, poor vis with mist around the estuary at dawn

Despite the 'wrong' wind direction the light mist produced a nice small fall on the island involving 8 Willow Warbler, a Chiffchaff and an early male Goldcrest (which was caught and ringed).  A single Wheatear graced the island but there were few other migrant passerines,

The Magpie was noted as was a Greenshank - a typical late August record.

Three Arctic Skuas were noteworthy on the seawatch.

Ringing:  Robin, Willow Warbler (3), Chiffchaff, Goldcrest [630-30]
