There has been a steady passage of whimbrels over the past 3 weeks with small groups feeding on the headland, rarely staying more than an hour. This week has seen a considerable passage of dunlins, feeding up on the seaweed. Today at North Bay there were over 1000 close to high tide.

A marked increase in numbers of Whitethroats and Sedge Warblers around Brevig today and a few Whimbrels and Swallows passing through. I had a surprise at lunch time when I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a Magpie; presumably the recent Castlebay bird.
