22nd May

With continuing easterly wind and small numbers of birds arriving, there was disappointingly little of note to report. The highlight was probably 3 Curlew Sandpipers at Trollavatn, while 2 Black-tailed Godwits, a Yellow Wagtail, 3 Tree Sparrows (2 of which were new) and 2 Goldfinches were the best of the rest.

Other count's from the day's log included 4 Sand Martins, 10 House Martins, 1 Redstart, 1 Song Thrush, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Whitethroats, 1 Garden Warbler, 9 Blackcaps, 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 11 Carrion Crows, 1 Siskin and 1 Common Redpoll. The 3 Woodpigeons and 2 Collared Doves were still here, and a Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk and a Merlin were the only raptors.
