An incremental improvement - albeit only a very small one - today saw a handful more migrants in evidence around the Bill, where 2 each of Reed Warbler, Garden Warbler and Chiffchaff, and singles of Wheatear, Sedge Warbler and Willow Warbler were knocking about on the ground. Swallow passage picked up, including a low hundreds total from the Bill where 3 Yellow Wagtails were amongst the other overhead arrivals. The second Balearic Shearwater of the week passed by off the Bill amongst the c200 total of Manx Shearwaters; 2 Arctic Skuas and a Red-throated Diver were also logged on the sea there.
