18th May

The persistent, strong westerly airflow proved predictably unpropitious as a vector of avian migration, and the departure of the lingering semi-scarcities left us virtually bereft of anything worth reporting. A couple of Jackdaws in the morning transpired to be just about the only new passerines recorded all day, while a Cuckoo was the pick of the non-anisodactyl species. A Manx Shearwater flew past the seawatching hide, and 17 Pink-footed Geese dropped in near the lighthouse.
