7th May

5 dotterel were the highlight of a very windy day, feeding in a ploughed field at Ancum in the evening. A blackcap was still at Gretchen and a chiffchaff in Holland, but a greenfinch was new at Kirbest, and counts of 500 shag on Green Skerry, 284 purple sandpiper and 642 arctic terns are all highest counts so far this month. The curlew sandpiper had moved to Gretchen Loch, a snow bunting was at Brides'ness and migrant corvids included at least 4 carrion crows and 3 raven.
