13th August

The arrival of 2 willow warblers in the South was hopefully an encouraging sign of things to come, but same old elsewhere on the island with 2 black-tailed godwit in Kirbest Mire and 4 ruff on Gretchen. A whimbrel was on the banks and a total of 34 knot at the North end. Birds passing at sea included a sooty shearwater, 5 manx shearwater and 12 storm petrel. 4+ white-sided dolphin were also seen.
