14th May

4 dotterel at Cott in the morning became 6 by the evening and a fine male bluethroat was by the Lighthouse. The 2 curlew sandpiper were on Troll Vatn Loch and other notable waders included 19 knot and a whimbrel. Also at the north end were a swift, lesser whitethroat and a white wagtail. 3 sand martin and a house martin were over Gretchen Loch, a male kestrel and a sparrowhawk by Holland and in the gardens were a siskin, woodpigeon, 2 blackcap and a chiffchaff. A stonechat was seen at Greenwall and a spotted flycatcher at the Obs, whilst singles of song thrush and willow warbler were noted elsewhere.
