31st May

The most interesting birds were all long-stayers, with the Scaup, a Garganey, a Quail and a Short-eared Owl all seen during the day. A Common Sandpiper was in Nouster Bay, 5 Siskins were dotted round the island, and other small migrants included 3 Collared Doves, 1 Blackcap, 2 Chiffchaffs, 1 Willow Warbler and 3 Spotted Flycatchers.

Several Collared Doves have been ringed in Holland House garden this year, including this female trapped this morning.
