6th August 2020

Weather: S force 0/1  clear then cloud
A quiet morning, the only obvious migrants were a few Swallows and a Swift, and later in the morning a Wheatear appeared on 'Wheatear hill'.
The juvenile Robin was in the obs garden, no doubt that Robins bred on the island this year. Linnets must have had a sucessful season as there are many about the island at the moment. Two Kestrels moved around the area mid-morning.
Waders were naturally not in numbers at the low tide but flocks of 120 and 80 Knot were seen in flight. Four Whimbrel and a Bar-tailed Godwit were on the shore.
Ringed: 1 Robin
