The best birds of a mostly quiet day were a drake Common Scoter mingling with the Eiders off Twingness and a flock of 6 Black-tailed Godwits (the first of the year) on Ancum Loch. At least 40 Lapland Buntings were still present, some of which were even singing and displaying. A Peregrine was on the west coast and 2 Willow Warblers, 3 Goldcrests, a Siskin and 2 Dunnocks were seen.
Like the Lapland Buntings, some of the Snow Buntings on the island are well on their way to acquiring full, striking breeding plumage. But not this one.
