Weather: SE force 2 sunny and warm later
No warblers at all were found today and the most numerous migrants were the 45 Lesser Redpolls, a small number of which were ringed.
Other finches seen/heard were 7 Siskins and 8 Goldfinches. A Tree Pipit called over Middle Eye and another on the main island, and a single Yellow Wagtail was at the north end. Pink-footed Geese were in stealth mode today, 130 oddly passing mid-morning without calling. News of other wildfowl included 2 Greylags flying west, A dark and 2 pale-bellied Brent swan about on the sea while a single pale Brent joined the 3 Mallards and 2 Cananda geese on the island pond.
All eyes are on the few Rock Pipits to confirm breeding on the islands.
Gannets are now a regular sight feeding off the islands, 25 did so today.
