19th - 21st August

A steady few days, dominated by brisk SSE winds, long spells of sunshine interspersed by showers sweeping through; waders continued to pass through as high counts through this period included 102 Knot, 242 Sanderling, 16 Black-tailed Godwit, 14 Ruff, a Green Sandpiper and 192 Turnstone.   Other birds comprised a decent seawatch on the 21st with 26 Sooty Shearwaters and 39 Manx Shearwaters past the Lighthouse in the morning while a Swift also came in off, up to 3 Peregrines, a Merlin, 2 Stonechats still, a Collared Dove and a Garden Warbler on the 20th.
