13th July

A small selection of migrants made for a slightly more interesting day's birding. At least 51 Swifts, the highest count of the year, were seen catching insects over the lochs and fields, along with 13 Sand Martins and 2 House Martins. A new Chiffchaff and 4 Common Redpolls were at Holland House, a Lesser Redpoll was at the north of the island and a Collared Dove arrived. A Peregrine flew north out to sea, and 7 Knots and 12 Dunlins were the best of the waders.
