6th October

Counts from just over two hours seawatching consisted of 3670 fulmar - including 14 blue, 20 sooty shearwater, 11 manx shearwater, 269 gannet, 186 kittiwakes and a grey phalarope. 6 whooper swan were on Ancum Loch and 73 barnacle geese flew thorugh, whilst a less than annual slavonian grebe was in Nouster Bay. The few other migrants seen today were a blackcap at Bridesness, 3 redwing, a song thrush, a goldcrest and 16 snow bunting.
