The sun beating down on the island until late afternoon made it a rather nice day to be outside. The autumn's first Common Tern drifted south past the North Hide in the morning with counts of migrants on the Narrows totaling two Grey Herons, two Dunlins, one Whimbrel, nine Curlews, two Redshanks, three Common Sandpipers, nine Turnstones, and five Black-headed Gulls.

Yesterday's Grey Seal count paled in significance to the massive 286 hauled out today. The highest number recorded since May 2008.
