There was a large arrival of Willow Warbler overnight into the 25th, and small numbers continued to move through the island from dawn to dusk. A total of 280 Willow Warblers were recorded, about 60 of which were trapped and ringed, whilst a selection of other warblers included nine Sedge Warblers, a Garden Warbler and four Chiffchaffs. Another juvenile Marsh Harrier graced the island today, with a bird circling above the observatory mid-morning. A selection of waders at high tide amounted to: one Lapwing, seven Sanderlings, six Dunlins, six Whimbrels, three Redshanks, four Common Sandpipers and two Turnstones.
