19th - 20th May

Mist-netting on 19th saw a Sparrowhawk, one of 3 Tree Pipits there and a Pied Flycatcher trapped and ringed as well as single Sedge Warblers on both dates indicating passage birds (at least 4 singing males currently on the Island). An Osprey flew low north early morning as did a Crossbill. Sightings of Robin and Redwing were a touch unusual whilst elsewhere two each of Woodpigeon and Collared Dove, 10 House Martins, 63 Wheatears, 3 Blackcaps, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, 2 Spotted Flycatchers, 3 Siskins and a Lesser Redpoll. The 20th was much quieter but did include a female Grey-headed Wagtail, Green Sandpiper at Lurand, 2 Barnacle Geese, a White Wagtail and 2 Chiffchaffs.
