2nd June

 Today felt interesting with the constant threat of drizzle keeping the clouds low and the occasional burst of rain making it feel like something could be downed at any moment. Despite the seemingly excellent conditions, we had to make do with two Rosy Starlings that both moved north from arriving at the Bill in quick succession. The rest of the day was spent traipsing through the usual haunts in a vain attempt to find something a little rarer, finding just a single Hobby and a selection of breeding Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs in the process. The sea was quiet with just the lingering Puffins and three Sandwich Terns of note. 

It would appear that the Rosy Starling invasion is gaining momentum with another two arriving this morning, including this absolute corker complete with clean pink mantle and full shaggy crest ©Erin Taylor (perched) ©Martin Cade (flight shots):
