Today was extremely still and the Irish sea looked like a mill pond! The sky stayed clear all day producing a taste of summer weather. 

The avian news today produced no real highlight as such. The waders numbers had increased with migrants such as 36 Dunlins, five Sanderlings and a single Grey Plover showed signs of movement, there were also two Ringed Plovers. three Curlews, 141 Oyster Catchers, six Whimbrels, and nine Turnstones

Other counts included the inguring Grey Heron, two Buzzards, five Collared Doves, ten Stonechats, ten Wheatears, 15 Sedge Warblers, nine Common Whitethroats, five Blackcaps, and 11 Spotted Flycatchers
