15th May

Yesterday's north-easterlies were replaced by westerlies and interest dwindled right away. At the Bill numbers on the ground were reduced to just 4 each of Sedge Warbler and Spotted Flycatcher, and ones and twos of a handful of other expected routine migrants. The sea was hardly any better, with 5 Shelduck, 3 Great Northern Divers and a single Arctic Skua the best off the Bill.

Single Hummingbird Hawk-moths were again logged at several sites, whilst single Bordered Straws were caught overnight in moth-traps at the Obs and Sweethill.
