2nd September

A presumed Citrine Wagtail seen briefly near Garso Loch in the morning provided a bit of excitement at the end of an otherwise very quiet morning census. The observatory staff, setting off to drive to the north end of the island to try and relocate it, made a lucky decision to drop off the recycling at the bottle bank on the way and found the wagtail, now easily confirmed as a Citrine, sat on the pier right in front of them.

A new Barred Warbler was seen at Cursetter, while the long-staying ringed bird remained in Holland House garden and the flock of 4 Common Rosefinches remained at Gravity.
