3rd September

Persistent westerlies continuing, there were at least a handful of small migrants in the north of the island. A couple of Lapland Buntings were perhaps to be expected on winds of this direction, while a Whitethroat, a Garden Warbler and Willow Warbler also managed to make landfall. The Meadow Pipit count crept up to 243 and at least one of the Barred Warblers was still present. A two-hour stint in the seawatching hide produced 11 Sooty Shearwaters, 4 Manx Shearwaters and 1,091 Fulmars.
