29th July

A rather uneventful day with passerine migrants restricted to 3 Sedge Warblers, a Wheatear and a Grasshopper Warbler at the Bill, singles of Grey Wagtail and Willow Warbler in the centre of the island and a handful of hirundines overhead. Six Shelducks, a Yellow-legged Gull, a Balearic Shearwater and an Arctic Skua passed by amongst the routine fare off the Bill and 28 Dunlin, 21 Ringed Plovers and a lone Sanderling made up the wader tally at Ferrybridge.
