11th May

A truly dire day with a blasting and none too warm northeasterly seeing to it that there were almost no new migrants and the worst ringing total of the month (an impressive feat considering how poor the ringing has been in May). The saving grace was the appearance of two rather late Little Gulls east past the Bill, otherwise the sea was quiet. Very little was reported across the entire island, although a Hobby heading north at Chesil Cove was of note.
