10th August

Another miserable day but a few new migrants included 2 sedge warbler and a willow warbler at Bridesness and a grey heron on Garso Loch. A fieldfare at Parkhouse is presumably the bird present in July and a total of 51 snipe is a noteworthy increase. 15 bar-tailed godwit were scattered amongst flocks of curlew and golden plover, and at Westness were 46 knot and 6 dunlin. Todays seawatching highlight was a cory's shearwater flying west, with other passage including 47 storm petrel, 2 sooty shearwater and 7 manx shearwater.
