Tim Jones and Tim Davis report a quiet few days for birds. One hundred Puffins were counted on land in Jenny's Cove on the 10th. Up to three Collared Doves were present with singing noted in Millcombe and sightings as far north as Halfway Wall. Two Swifts were recorded on 11th. The Black Guillemot has not been seen sine 2nd June, so seems to have departed. Water Rail has been proven to breed again this year with a chick heard to call near Quarterwall Pond on the evening of 8th.
Tim and Tim also report plenty of success reading Wheatear colour rings from a breeding study being carried out on the island.
