9th - 10th August

A Kestrel was new on the 9th, while a couple each of Greenshank and Green Sandpiper were still present and Ruffs increased to 10. There were 13 of the latter species on the 10th, and a flock of 10 Black-tailed Godwits arrived from the north. A couple of Grey Herons and a male Hen Harrier also arrived, at least 2 White Wagtails were among the Pieds, a Chiffchaff was at the north of the island and the Black-headed Bunting was seen again briefly as another period of fog rolled in for the evening.

Sedge Warblers have been more conspicuous than usual recently, although all sightings probably just involve the island's breeding birds and their offspring.
