Friday 26 May 2023

A day of clear sunny skies and a brisk north-westerlies, the highlight of the day was a pair of Cranes that drifted south mid-morning. These became only the second and third island records after the first in 1995. Late spring passage of waders continued with six Sanderling, five Dunlin, a Whimbrel, two Turnstones and a Golden Plover. The first White Wagtail in a while was on Solfach. A total of 26 Spotted Flycatchers were counted across the Island and three Collared Doves were at Cristin.
