The arrival of a Whimbrel to join the two lingering Eurasian Curlews, and fleeting visits by a Sand Martin and two Common Swifts were the only notable avian sightings of the day.

An intriguing report was received of a Leatherback Turtle just offshore, seen last week from the boat. With good numbers of jellyfish around the island lately it seems a good idea to keep an eye open for a reoccurrence.

Late in the night, the first attempt of the year to catch European Storm Petrels was successful, with six birds being ringed during the brief period of darkness available.
