17th June 2021

Weather: NW force 2/3

A Raven made another appearance on the island, they have been seen regularly over the last few months. The pair of Eider are still here, as is the singing Whitehroat. After a spell of Canada Goose records, a single was recorded again today. A single Swift was the sole 'migrant' visitor and as usual in mid-summer just 18 Common and 6 Sandwich Terns were feeding. The West Hoyle bank at low tide hosted 1,400 Herring Gulls, with other counts of 20 Lesser Black-backs, 6 Great Black-backs, 4 Common Gulls and a single Black-headed Gull. The Kestrel was on the island, as were at least 8 Short-tailed Field Voles that had evaded it. Seven Little Egrets were among the shore birds today, also 2 Grey Herons.
