27th September

Again, the highlights consisted mostly of rarities that had been present for a few days: the Pallid Harrier was still hunting around the middle of the island, the Buff-breasted Sandpiper had moved to the golf course, the Pectoral Sandpiper was at Kirbest Mire and the Short-toed Lark was at Bewan. There was little change in passerine numbers, but a Barred Warbler, 3 Yellow-browed Warblers, a Pied Flycatcher, a Chaffinch, a Siskin and a Redpoll were all seen, and the first 2 House Martins for a while roosted at the observatory.
