Two Reed Warblers, two Pied Flycatchers, a Spotted Flycatcher and ten Goldcrests were amongst a small arrival of migrants, including around 25 Willow Warblers. Out to sea, a Great Skua, two Arctic Terns, eight Sandwich Terns and a few Common Scoters flew past. A Sparrowhawk and Kestrel were the only raptors present around the island.

 Its been an excellent autumn for Pied Flycatchers
