A surprise find in the afternoon concerned a Quail flushed from the North-west Heath. Amazingly, a repeat scenario of last year when two were seen at the same site on 16 June.
More sea-watching produced counts of 986 Manx Shearwaters, 44 Gannets, two Common Scoters, and 15 Puffins whilst one Collared Dove, 25 Swallows, one House Martin, six Sedge Warblers, two Chiffchaffs, and two Lesser Redpolls were dotted around the island. A single Sanderling and 20 Turnstones were the best on The Narrows.
