12th August

Lovely, bright and sunny with a light NW wind; a decent spread of birds were across the island but little in the way of new things as totals included 2 Manx Shearwaters off the top end, 3 Herons, a juvenile female Peregrine, 670 Golden Plover, 132 Knot, 8 Ruff, 5 Black-tailed Godwits, single Greenshank and Green Sandpiper, the Grey-headed Wagtail which reappeared on the beach at Westness and a single Willow Warbler.   Also of note was the confirmation of breeding Woodpigeons in Holland House – the first breeding record for the island and a Hummingbird Hawkmoth along the coast at Stennabreck.
