27th September

2 pectoral sandpipers spent the day on Gretchen Loch, with a scaup dropping in there breifly late afternoon. 5 ruff were amongst the golden plover in Mid Park, the 2 little stints were still on Bewan Loch and a minimum of 2 hen harrier were seen. Strong winds made veiwing in Holland gardens difficult but the red-flanked bluetail appears to have moved on, as have most migrant passerines. Those that were seen included 17 wheatear, lesser whitethroat, 2 goldcrest, blackcap, song thrush , 2 common scoter flew past the seawatch hide and 511 pink-footed geese flew through.
