25th and 26th August




On the 25th a Common Sandpiper was seen on the west side. A good count of ducks on ancum included 105 Wigeon, 89 Mallard and 11 Pintail. A hours sea-watch produced two Sooty Shearwater, three Manx Shearwater and a blue Fulmar.
The 26th saw the Barred Warbler at holland again where it was joined by a Wood Warbler. Three Willow Warblers were dotted around the island and the Common Sandpiper was again seen. A hours sea-watch in the afternoon produced a single Sooty Shearwater, 11 Manx Shearwater and two Storm Petrel.
