7th October

It was another quiet day, although 4 White-fronted Geese and a Pomarine Skua flying past were noteworthy sightings. A Common Redpoll was probably new, while other passerines included a Barred Warbler, a Common Rosefinch, a Whinchat and a Robin.

Plenty of the common waders have been around recently, including Purple Sandpipers in several rocky areas of coastline.

The Whinchat has been resident around the observatory traps for most of the week, somehow evading capture so far.
