A rather variable day weather-wise on the island with gale-force winds and heavy rain showers in the morning, but clear skies and tranquil seas in the evening. Two Black Redstarts headlined today’s sightings, with presumably yesterday’s young male still at Nant and another hopping around the North End rocks. One Ring Ouzel could still be found hiding on the mountainside in the morning.

In addition to above, 229 Manx Shearwaters, one Merlin, one Sparrowhawk, two Ringed Plovers, one Curlew,  three Redshanks, one Black-headed Gull, 12 Swallows, 28 Pied Wagtails, one White Wagtail, 11 Blackcaps, 36 Chiffchaffs, 28 Willow Warblers, three Goldcrests, and one Rook were seen
