Another quiet day was livened up considerably by a Honey Buzzard heading south over the island in the late morning, with a small group of gulls mobbing it. Only Steve saw it though, as the rest of us were doing Storm Petrel census round the East Side! This was also successful today, with a few areas searched revealing 24 adults responding to tape.

The other most notable sighting of the day was 30 Common Scoters moving south down the West Coast, while on the Narrows just 18 Curlews were seen today, alongside the three Redshanks and a single Whimbrel that have been present for a few days now.

A more interesting day for insects included six Red Admirals, three Small Tortoiseshells, two Graylings, 14 Meadow Browns, a Large White, a Silver Y and three Ruby-tailed Wasps taking advantage of the improving weather.
