A turn in the weather has brought an end to cloudless skys for the time being and in exchange mist and rain has descended on the island. Very few if any new birds have passed through aside from the odd redpoll and siskin.

At least ten pairs of swallows are currently on eggs in and around the out buildings on the island with another four nests lined with feathers, presumably ready for laying.

In other news a recent batch of fledgling wrens now grace the obs garden, stonechats are busy feeding young around the island, oyster catchers are as noisy as ever defending their territories from larger birds and the odd passers by and the north end is bustling with recently fledged linnits.
