20th September

The American Golden Plover was still in its favoured field today when there were also 7 Curlew Sandpiper and 58 Black-tailed Godwit. A saewatch saw 642 Fulmar, 7 Sooty and a single Manx Shearwater. Passerines consisted of 110 Meadow pipit,5 White Wagtail, 1 Robin, 1 Redstart, 3 Whinchat, 1 Sedge Warbler, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 4 Spotted and 1 Pied Flycatcher, a Common Rosefinch and best of all a Hornemanni Arctic Redpoll.

Gripping bird and I have still yet to see one of these ''snowballs'' in Britain. If it stays, will be well tempted to twitch it. Perhaps more will arrive.
