14th June

A respite from the recent rain didn't arrive in tandem with much of a reduction in the strength of the nagging southwesterly but some pleasant sunshine was certainly most welcome. Tardy migrants keep appearing, even in the prevailing seemingly wholly unsuitable conditions, with 4 Reed Warblers and 2 Spotted Flycatchers new in at the Bill. The sea provided the rest of the interest, with 4 Arctic Skuas, 2 Common Scoter and 2 Balearic Shearwaters through off the Bill along with a nearly three figure total of Manx Shearwaters.
