14th August

There was a slight improvement in the variety of migrants on the island, with passerine highlights including an Icterine Warbler, a Black Redstart, a Wood Warbler, 2 Garden Warblers, 3 Willow Warblers and a Tree Pipit. At least 127 Knots were present, 7 Sandwich Terns and 2 Common Terns were around the coast, and a Swift and a Peregrine were seen.

Species making their first appearances of the autumn were the Icterine Warbler, the Wood Warbler, the Black Redstart and this Tree Pipit.
