Another good day on the island with a juvenile Glaucous Gull early afternoon being the best bird. Also 3 Black Redstarts, 2 Wheatears, 2 Sand Martins, 2 Snow Buntings and Lapland Bunting and a Yellowhammer were amongst the pick of the crop. There were about 700 meadow pipits again and a flock of 60+ (mostly stunning adult males) Pied Wagtails!
There were a few Fieldfares and Redwings again (some of the Redwings are the Icelandic race T.i.coburni.)
The only other news is that the first Manxys were back ashore last night. Having made the 17,000km trip to Argentina just four or so months ago, they are now coming back, another 17,000km (that is assuming the birds fly in a straight line to and from the wintering grounds which we know they don't ).
