5th September

Despite a fairly promising weather forecast for the morning there appeared to be almost no new birds whatsoever. A Grasshopper Warbler and a second Lapland Bunting were the most interesting, and 3 White Wagtails, a Whinchat and a Common Sandpiper were also probably new. A few notable species remained from earlier in the week: the Wryneck was still on the west coast, the Barred Warbler was in Holland House garden, the Wood Sandpiper was on Gretchen Loch and the Little Stint and a Curlew Sandpiper remained near the lighthouse. Other odds and ends included a Red-throated Diver, a Great Northern Diver, a Black-tailed Godwit, a Garden Warbler and 3 Willow Warblers.

The Curlew Sandpiper is presumably a bird from the flock of 5 earlier in the week.
