Spring continues to draw to a close

23rd May 2010 – hazy sun/warm/V1
Sightings were limited to small numbers of Gannet and Sandwich Tern.
Grounded Migrants
Two Chiffchaff, 2 Wheatear and a Garden Warbler were the only evidence of new arrivals.
Wildfowl and Waders
Two late Golden Plover flew through.
Common Swift, Purple Bar, Marbled Minor, Treble Lines and Thistle Ermine were all new for the year, while the micro Metzneria lappella would appear to be the first island record.
