We finally had a Yellow-browed Warbler at the Obs today. They are all over the country so it was nice to finally get to grips with one. It was discovered first thing calling frequently from Sycamores by the Lighthouse on Pharos Street and it was seen twice before disappearing inland. The nearest site with enough cover was the Mount where it was heard once in the morning and seen briefly at lunchtime.

26 Common Scoters west, 2 Red-throated Divers west, 1 Great Crested Grebe west, 2 Sandwich Terns west, 1 Guillemot, 2 Razorbills and 17 Auk sp. west.

Visible Migration 
2 Grey Wagtails south, 18 Meadow Pipits south and 1 Chaffinch south.

Grounded Migrants 
1 Yellow-browed Warbler, 4 Chiffchaffs, 17 Blackbirds, 5 Song Thrushes, 2 Redwings, 1 Stonechat, 9 Wheatears, 5 Dunnocks and 1 Grey Wagtail.

37 Ringed Plovers, 75 Sanderlings, 1 Purple Sandpiper, 42 Dunlins and 200 Turnstones.
