Seven Sandwich Terns were the highlight of a lovely day on the island. The Narrows had two Ringed Plovers, two Whimbrels, nine Curlews, one Redshanks, and 14 Turnstones feeding at high tide. Migrants inland amounted to one Collared Dove, one Cuckoo, and one Spotted Flycatcher.
Seabird counting on the east side of the island produced good figures
Lots of Lesser Black-backed Gulls were on the east side
Lots of Puffins flying about
amongst the 2000 Razorbills
and 1500 Guillemots
Kittiwake chicks are also starting to hatch
