6th October

The EYEBROWED THRUSH was soon located in the morning despite a good southward passage of redwings from first light, with 1700 through by 9am. It showed well early morning, but soon became mobile as the weather worsened and was last seen early afternoon. A grey wagtail flew south, autumn firsts included 4 ring ouzel, 3 brambling, and a long-tailed duck and 3 jack snipe were around Bridesness. Redwings were well scattered with a conservative 556 grounded birds logged, a yellow-browed warbler was by Brides Loch, a chiffchaff and blackcap in East Loch Park and 9 song thrushes. A HORNEMAN'S ARCTIC REDPOLL was seen at the north end, by Rue, and 2 great northern divers flew over.
