The wind may have briefly swung easterly but it didn't bring the hoped for birds into the island. The most noteworthy birds being the 2 Glaucous Gulls and the 2 Greenland White-fronted Geese being seen daily. Geese counts have peaked with 7 Pink-footed Geese on the 2nd, the Tundra Bean Goose still present on the 5th and the 7 Barnacle Geese still on the 4th.
Along with 206 Black Guillemots on the 3rd, 4 Puffins and 2 Harbour Porpoises passed the northern end of the island and were the first to be seen from the island this year. On the 4th 6 Goldcrests were unearthed while a Sandwich Tern was present in Nouster Bay.
