A handful of new arrivals included 2 blackcap, 2 robin, a spotted flycatcher and a Greenland redpoll at Holland. Also there were the chiffchaff and 2 goldcrest, with another of the latter at Scots Ha. A grey wagtail was on the airfield and thrushes today were 46 redwing, 18 song thrush and 13 blackbird. A grey phalarope was again seen from the seawatch hide and a long-tailed duck was also seen. 7 whooper swan are on Ancum Loch, 61 barnacle geese still at Nether Linnay with 96 knot and a single swallow was by the pier. Other bits included 3 wheatears, 2 great-northern divers, a hen harrier and a grey plover.
