A sunny pleasant day with some mist and still very mild temperatures. Despite the gloomy forecast there was no rain.
We found a Wryneck at about lunch-time and spent a short time watching this before it disappeared and Eleanor bumped in to another Lapland Bunting, this time on Penninis Head.
Still plenty of in-coming migrants with four Redstarts, ten Whinchats, over a hundred Wheatears, six Pied Flycatchers, ten Spotted Flycatchers, forty White Wagtails, three Ring Ouzels and smaller numbers of common warblers.
Raptors included Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Peregrine and coast-line birds included Mediterranean Gull, Sandwich Tern and Little Egret. The high-light of the day however may have been the apple strudel and clotted cream treat in an island café!
Three Clouded Yellow butterflies put on a good performance and Small Tortoiseshell and Large White were further flutter-by additions.
A nice sun-tan and two exhausted border collies concluded a very enjoyable day!
