At least 52 Skylarks were noted on the 1st, but there was little else of note on that day. The dark immature Iceland Gull was still around on the 2nd, along with a new adult, and another second-winter bird was seen on the 3rd. After a period of apparent absence, the Gretchen Loch Glaucous Gull returned to its usual spot on the latter date. Also on the 3rd, a Little Auk was in Nouster Bay and 4 Little Grebes had returned to Bridesness Loch. The flock of White-fronted Geese was present throughout.
