4th October

Less windy, although not by much, the day's birding did reveal a few noteworthy species, although most passerines were presumably long-stayers. The best new birds were a juvenile Little Gull in Linklet Bay and a Short-eared Owl at the north of the island; the best of the non-movers were the Short-toed Lark, a Common Rosefinch, a Yellow-browed Warbler, 2 Curlew Sandpipers and the Greenland White-fronted Goose.

Other odds and ends included 3 Bramblings, 2 Chaffinches, 7 Blackcaps, a Whinchat, a Swallow, a Common Tern and 3 Arctic Terns.
