The first small shower for about three weeks dampened the island for a brief five minutes in the morning; the rest of the day was breezy and sunny.
Three rather nice 'Islandica' Black-tailed Godwits arrived on the Narrows in the morning, along with three summer-plumaged Knots. Other wader counts included a Whimbrel, 18 Turnstones, 11 Dunlins and five Redshanks.
Elsewhere, three Willow Warblers were in the gorse on the South End, along with a further three elsewhere.
