26th November - 3rd December

Quiet as expected but casual sightings have included lesser redpoll, woodcock and 'eastern' chiffchaff on 27th and stonechat and common scoter on 28th. Also on this day was the unexpected and rare sighting of an otter at Stennabreck and again on 29th at Twingness. Up to 3 robins have been seen daily plus 2 song thrush, 2 fieldfare, up to 70 snow buntings and both male and female hen harrier.

Late news from an islander was of 3 killer whales off Bewan on 22nd November.
