Although summer is well and truly upon us there was still plenty to see at the Lighthouse today. Offshore a small flock of semi resident Gannets (mainly immatures) fed offshore whilst several Common Scoter flew west.
A few very late migrant stragglers could be found in the paddocks including 2 Wheatear and a male Yellow Wagtail mid afternoon. Breeding warblers were abundant including several singing Reed Warbler (Photo below)

A couple of Common Terns took up residence on a navigation marker, keeping a watchful eye on distant shipping as it negotiates the waters of the Irish Sea.
