26th September

Still quiet in terms of numbers but the RED-FLANKED BLUETAIL was still in the Sycamores at Holland, the bluethroat remained at Westness and 5 yellow-browed warblers were dotted around the island. Leftovers included the turtle dove and flava wagtail in the North and the curlew sandpiper was on Bewan Loch with 3 little stint. Also seen were 2 robin, 11 redwing, 5 song thrush, 2 blackcap, 2 goldcrest, 2 chiffchaff and singles of lesser whitethroat, tree pipit and garden warbler. The only new migrants today were a black redstart and 544 pink-footed geese flew south.
