5th June

A radiant day, almost entirely undarkened by any clouds throughout was unencumbered by birds until the evening when two Rosy Starlings pitched up in the hedges behind Southwell. The rest of the day was a struggle bird-wise with with a new Chiffchaff at the Obs and a Blackcap at Culverwell the only additions from the land. The sea was a little busier, including singles of Great Northern Diver, Balearic Shearwater and Arctic Skua through off the Bill.
