13th October

Bird of the day today was an eclipse drake King Eider that was seen by one person at Stromness point, despite extensive searching we could not relocate it. A Turtle Dove was seen and counts of 41 Robin, 25 Wheatear, 14 Fieldfare, 29 Song Thrush and 57 Redwing were returned. The Pied Wheatear was still at the Lurn but warblers had decreased to just a single Blackcap and 3 Chiffchaff. A Red-backed Shrike was at the Obs and a Great Grey Shrike was at Holland. 43 Lapland Bunting and 149 Snow Bunting were counted.
