19th May

The day began and ended with a blanket of fog covering the Island but in-between it was a pleasant warm day, with the wind dropping completely. Highlights included a female Bluethroat in the road near Purtabreck, an Icterine Warbler at Ancum Willows where yesterdays 2 Red-backed Shrikes had also relocated. A Greenshank was seen an the first Manx Shearwater of the year passed by the north end. A new male Sparrowhawk was at Holland, the 9 Tree Sparrows were still at Kirbest but singles of Redwing and Snow Bunting were new arrivals.
