16th October

Although there were few new birds to report, it was quite a good day for birds of prey, with 2 Sparrowhawks, 2 Merlins, a Peregrine, a Hen Harrier, 2 Short-eared Owls and a Long-eared Owl seen. A Grey Phalarope was off the north of the island, the first Mute Swan of the autumn appeared on Ancum Loch and a Little Auk was found swimming on Bewan Loch. The resident Short-toed Lark made another appearance in its usual spot, and the previous day's Common Rosefinch was still around.
