Hummingbird provides highlight

28th June 2011 – bright and sunny WNW3/4
Quiet over the sea early morning with just small numbers of Gannet, Common Scoter and Guillemot logged.
Grounded Migrants
Another Willow Warbler provided further evidence of early southbound movement.
Diurnal Migration
Three Swift and 2 Sand Martin provided evidence of diurnal migration.
Breeding Birds
A juvenile Cuckoo being fed by a Meadow Pipit was the first evidence of confirmed breeding on the island for a number of years.
Immigrants attracted to the moth traps involved Hummingbird Hawkmoth, Silver Y and Diamond-backed Moth. An example of Phycita roborella appears to be just the second island record and the first since 1992 while a Buff-tip was also seen.
