Tony Taylor, on his last day on the island this trip, reports increased numbers of Willow Warblers, Blackcaps, Whitethroats and flycatchers in Millcombe first thing, but later the warblers seemed largely to have moved on. A Collared Dove was singing and a few Goldcrests were feeding in the trees. A windless morning allowed some mist-netting, and the catch included a Grasshopper Warbler and two Reed Warblers. A third, unringed, Reed Warbler was also seen.
A summary of Tony and Richard & Rebecca Taylor's time on the island, from 30 Aug to 10 Sep, ringing Manx Shearwaters appears below (slightly out of date order!).
