10th May

The highlights of a quieter day were 5 Garganeys (a pair on Brides Loch, 2 drakes and a duck on Hooking Loch) and a Quail at Stennabreck. A Lesser Redpoll was the most notable small migrant, although other passerines included a House Martin, a Tree Pipit, a White Wagtail, a Robin, 3 Fieldfares, 9 Sedge Warblers, 6 Lesser Whitethroats, 1 Common Whitethroat, 2 Garden Warblers, 4 Blackcaps, 5 Chiffchaffs, 6 Willow Warblers, a Spotted Flycatcher and a Chaffinch. A Wood Sandpiper was still on Hooking Loch, and 2 Woodpigeons and 5 Collared Doves were seen.

A pair of Garganeys were on Brides Loch, and three were seen on Hooking Loch a short time later.

The Spotted Flycatcher was still in the garden at Holland.
