There was nothing of note to report on the 12th and 13th, but the 14th saw the beginning of 2012's systematic migrant census of the island. The best of a sparse selection of new migrants were a Chaffinch and a group of 5 Rooks, although the latter were a new species for the year. Long-staying Iceland Gulls were at Gravity and Westness, and a third individual was roosting on Seal Skerry. A Pink-footed Goose was again with the Greylags, and 2 Pied Wagtails were seen.
At least 12 Shelducks was an increase on recent counts.
