The fine weather was very short-lived and a thoroughly miserable day of drizzle had set in by dawn, predictably resulting in very few birds being seen. 11 Sandwich Terns passed along the coast, a Tree Pipit was on the South End and five Spotted Flycatchers were noted. The best of the waders were three Ruddy Turnstones and a single Whimbrel. On the bright side, the wet weather – while not being very good for birds – was excellent for looking for the island’s gastropods, and several Tree Slugs Limax marginatus were found at Cristin.
