12th June

Precious little to report today. Eight Swifts left to the south at the Bill, 12 Manx Shearwaters, a Common Scoter and an Arctic Skua passed through off the Bill and a lone Sanderling was at Ferrybridge.

Immigrant moth interest was limited to singles of Rusty-dot Pearl and Silver Y trapped overnight at the Obs and several Hummingbird Hawkmoths scattered about the island by day.
