Despite the glorious weather, there were very few migrants passing through the island (yet again). A single Whinchat remained near the Schoolhouse, whilst 17 Stonechats were also present around here. A pathetic total of 10 Willow Warblers included individuals throughout the vegetated areas.
A small movement of raptors included at least five Sparrowhawks, including a huge female; a Kestrel and two Buzzards were recorded.

 Meadow Pipit
 Small Tortoise Shell
The Autumn Ladie's Tresses are beginning to appear in the Donogoch Fields, and so will soon be present in their hundreds
