31st August

The first Lapland Bunting of the autumn was seen outside the observatory in the morning. A Collared Dove was new, and other landbirds included 2 Merlins, a Peregrine, a Garden Warbler, 2 Willow Warblers and a couple of Barred Warblers (at least one of which was a long-stayer). Seawatching sightings were fairly typical for the time of year, and included 13 Sooty Shearwaters, 4 Manx Shearwaters and a Storm Petrel.
