31st August

A very windy day saw little change with the Pectoral Sandpiper still on Gretchen, the Red-backed Shrike still at Dennishill and the Common Rosefinch in Kirbest crop; there were however now two Hen Harriers and a Merlin hunting across the island and a Green Sandpiper on Kirbest scrape.   Leftover migrants on the land included a Whinchat, a Whitethroat and 7 Willow Warblers while 65 alba Wagtails were scattered around while 3 Sooty Shearwaters and a single Manx Shearwater passed the north end.

This odd-looking leucistic Reed Bunting has been around Gravity recently
