1st June

A very quiet morning at the Obs was highlighted by the unusual occurrence of a June Goldcrest in the nets, a female recently finished breeding. The only other glimmers of migratory hope at the Bill came from a fly-over Hobby, a small trickle of Swifts and singles of Lapwing, Reed Warbler and Chiffchaff. The mornings watch of the sea was only interrupted by 71 Common Scoters, 7 Sanderling and a lone Manx Shearwater.
