2nd October

The first white winged gulls appeared today with an adult glaucous gull at Lindswick and a juvenile iceland gull over Nether Linnay, whilst snow buntings had increased to 27. A hen harrier was in the North were 127 knot were at Lindswick and 2 jack snipe at Westness. Common passerines included 2 goldcrest, 2 robin, 8 redwing and singles of willow warbler, chiffchaff and garden warbler at Holland and a blackcap was near Bewan, and a pectoral sandpiper was on the loch there. The only notable sea passage was of 7 sooty shearwater.
