22nd October

The grey phalarope flock at Bridesness had increased to 10 birds today, with the grey wagtail and little gull also in that area. Greylag goose numbers had been boosted somewhat with a count 1010, with 11 barnacle geese and 3 pink-footed geese amongst them. 22 whooper swan remain, 5 great-northern divers and 2 long-tailed ducks were in Linklet Bay where a juvenile glaucous gull flew through. 2 hen harrier passed through the island in the morning and thrushes consisted of 1 song thrush and 155 redwing. Flocks of 23 twite and 64 snow bunting were in the North.
