12th October

Things have quietened down a bit with numbers of most migrants decreasing daily. A Stock Dove was seen which is a good island record, numbers of other migrants included 113 Meadow Pipit, 25 Robin, the Pied Wheatear (by common consensus ), 5 Wheatear, 16 Song Thrush, 63 Redwing, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 3 Blackcap, 13 Chiffchaff, 6 Goldcrest, 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 20 Chaffinch, 28 Brambling and 16 Twite. Lapland Buntings had increased to 151 and a count of 28 Reed Bunting is quite high for the island.
