2 whooper swans on Garso Loch was an odd arrival, 3 grey heron were on Ancum Loch and at least 2 mealy redpoll were seen. Interesting waders were represented by a common sandpiper at Twinyes, 2 curlew sandpiper on Trolla Vatn and 90 knot at Nether Linnay. The first summer glaucous gull was still in Nouster bay, 3 sand martin and 3 house martin were at Bridesness and a siskin was singing outside the Observatory. Still at Holland were the 4 collared doves and a spotted flycatcher, and warblers today consisted 4 chiffchaff, 3 blackcap, 2 garden warbler and a lesser whitethroat.
