8th November

The HUME'S LEAF WARBLER was still present at Bridesness in the morning, and whilst watching this an OLIVE-BACKED PIPIT dropped in calling. It showed for some 15 minutes before heading off towards Stennabreck. There was limited coverage in the afternoon but thrushes were still in reasonable numbers, a single waxwing flew through and a black redstart was by Gretchen hide. 2 brambling were at Nether Linnay and in contrast to yesterday only 14 woodcock were seen. Other migrants included 13 goldcrest, 2 chiffchaff, 2 blackcap and 9 robin.
