25th June 2011 – overcast SW3/4
The sea provided the main interest of the day with early morning observations (0800-1000) led by 2 lingering Great Skua and an early returning Red-throated Diver. Also seen were 155 Manx Shearwater, 105 Gannet, 37 Common Scoter, 15 Guillemot, 4 Kittiwake, 2 Fulmar and 2 Sandwich Tern.
Grounded Migrants
Another Willow Warbler provided further evidence of movement.
Breeding Birds
At least 2 pairs of Barn Owl are now feeding young on the island and the Little Owls have fledged young.
The migrant Diamond-backed Moth was a recent attraction to the moth traps.
