A fresh south easterly wind whipped up overnight, and seemed to encourage any remaining migrants to move on. The result was a rather non-eventful day in avian terms: a Greenshank calling out with its 'chew-chew-chew' over The Narrows mid-morning was the first so far this year; a small movement of hirundines comprised one Sand Martin, 80 Swallows and 26 House Martins; and a Collared Dove and six Spotted Flycatchers were seen in the island's gardens.
