Weather: ESE force 2/3
An short visit pre-tide saw up to a dozen Willow Warblers passing through and up to a total of 18 Redpolls landing in the paddocks, giving an opportunity to admire the variation in plumage, odd birds showing some characteristics of Common Redpoll.
Calling overhead were 3 Tree Pipits, the first this year for the obs, and about 30 Goldfinches present during the period members were on the island.
Eight Wheatears passed through, most staying only briefly, as did 2 Sand Martins and 2 Swallows. Two House Sparrows provided interest for a while after they arrived.
