1st and 2nd September

On the 1st 60 Storm Petrels were counted on a sea-watch and 32 were caught over-night. The American Golden Plover was still present, singles of Sedge and Barred Warbler were seen and the Lapland Bunting count went to a new island record of 104. An attempt at catching the buntings was successful with nine birds being caught, only six had ever been ringed on the island before. The 2nd saw 350 Wigeon on ancum loch, a reasonable Swallow count of 62, Wagtail numbers consisted of 12 Pied, 40 Alba and at least one White. The Barred Warbler was still around holland and three Willow Warblers were seen.
