29th May

A handful of spotted flycatchers were new in this morning, with 5 in total and a chiffchaff was at Holland. The first marsh warbler of the spring was at Mid House, a siskin at the Surgery and 3 collared dove and a woodpigeon remain, but bird of the day came in the afternoon when a bee-eater was spotted outside the Observatory. This is only the 2nd record for the island, the 1st being on 18th June 1988.
