6th June

After the excitement of the past few days, it was somewhat of an anti-climax today with a gale-force westerly and showers interrupting much of the birding effort. The land was extremely difficult to bird with very little recorded in the way of new migrants, but the sea was busy with a strong passage of Manx Shearwaters, including 797 in two hours this evening. Other limited highlights included two Puffins and the second Arctic Skua for June.
