The first 2 Great Grey Shrikes of the year also arrived: 1 was discovered near Ancum Loch, and another was near Rue at the same time. Besides these scarcities, only a small number of new birds were seen, the best of which were a Whimbrel, a Collared Dove and a Long-eared Owl. A couple of Swallows, a Ring Ouzel, 2 Goldcrests and a Siskin were seen, the Scaup was still on Gretchen Loch and the flock of Knots at Tor Ness increased to 12 birds.
