18th September

Great shearwater was again the highlight with a single bird passing west in the morning, and even closer than the previous few. Other seawatch counts were 1343 fulmar, 17 sooty shearwater, 14 manx shearwater, 299 gannet and 315 kittiwake. A common rosefinch was at Ancum, two firsts of the autumn included a robin trapped at Holland and a jack snipe in Kirbest Mire. A chiffchaff was in East Loch Park, a lesser whitethroat, blackcap and pied flycatcher in Holland and 3 willow warbler were logged.
