7th July

A continuation of yesterday's passage with Balearic Shearwaters topping 50 birds and just 27 accompanying Manx Shearwaters. The sea's only other highlight was two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls among the dwindling numbers of feeding Gulls. The land was windswept and quiet once more with just a slack handful of Sand Martins the only visible passage migrants.

With little in the way of passage moths it was down to the locals to entertain us including the first Barred Rivulet of the year © Erin Taylor:
