It was a very pleasant day on the island, and much of daylight hours were spent counting and surveying the island's seabirds, from Manx Shearwaters to Kittiwakes. Some good counts were made, including 1000 Guillemots and 1592 Razorbills, plus the year's first two Storm Petrels calling in some rock crevices. In terms of fresh migrants, a reasonable scattering of records comprised three Sand Martins, 243 Swallows and 13 House Martins heading south, plus a Flava Wagtail, nine Sedge Warblers, six Whitethroats, two Garden Warblers, one Blackcap, three Chiffchaffs, six Willow Warblers and 24 Spotted Flycatchers.
