Just bits and pieces

8th July 2009 - sunny spells NW3/4
Morning observations (0740-0840) were again slow with just small numbers of Gannet, Common Scoter, Sandwich Tern and Guillemot logged.
Grounded Migrants
A Blackcap provided another hint that autumn is not too far away.
Diurnal Migration
A lack of any breeding birds on the island this year suggests that 3 Sand Martin were on migration.
Wildfowl and Waders
Waders included 3 Greenshank, 2 Whimbrel and single Black-tailed Godwit and Common Sandpiper.
A family party of 4 Little Owl were logged and a Peregrine was seen.
