A much calmer day than of late, but still counts of common migrants remained low. 14 Willow Warblers and a Spotted Flycatcher were still present, as was the juvenile Cuckoo which seems likely to have hatched on the island – the second year in succession that cuckoos have bred successfully. Six Golden Plovers and seven Dunlins flew south, while waders roosting around the coast included four Ringed Plovers, six more Dunlins and three Whimbrels. Five Sandwich Terns were out at sea, a Buzzard was still around and two Kestrels were seen.
