It was back to wintry conditions today, with a biting Northerly wind persisting throughout, ensuring that there were very few birds around. 106 Manx Shearwaters, a single Puffin and four Common Scoters were seen off the South tip in the morning, whilst four Blackcaps, eight Chiffchaffs and 28 Willow Warblers further inland included a few birds which appeared to arrive onto the island during one of the heavy showers. 

The moth traps haven't yielded a huge number of moths recently, although an Angle Shades (upper) was taken from the Cristin Withy trap today and the first Caloptilia stigmatella (lower) was caught yesterday
