7th September

The American Golden Plover was seen throughout the day, although it could be difficult to find among the mobile throngs - totalling around 800 birds - of Golden Plovers that were repeatedly split and scattered around the island by passing bonxies and farm machinery. The autumn's first Red-breasted Merganser and 4 Pink-footed Geese arrived, a Grey Plover was the first for a few weeks and a Lapland Bunting was in the north of the island. Sea passage remained similar to recent days, with 3 Sooty Shearwaters and 2 Manx Shearwaters the only noteworthy species.
