Tuesday, 1 June 2010

In past years the first day of June has produced some very good birds and, with this precedent in mind, it was with optimistic anticipation that the island’s birders were out in the field from early in the morning. Sadly, this year it was not to be. A single flava Wagtail was just about as exciting as it got, with very few other new arrivals at all. A lingering White Wagtail was on Solfach, six Spotted Flycatchers, seven Chiffchaffs, a Willow Warbler and a couple of Whitethroats were counted around the island, a couple of Sand Martins and four House Martins were seen and 12 Dunlins were on the beach.
