21st September

A quiet day with the most notable event being an influx of birders to the isle who will greatly improve the coverage for the next few weeks - watch this space!   There was a good afternoon passage of at least 600 Pink-footed Geese heading south today along with a high count of 536 Snipe while the Pectoral Sandpiper is still on Kirbest, one of the breeding Blue-headed Wagtails is still lingering around Ancum, a Merlin was still hassling the Snow Buntings and there were small numbers of Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat and Willow Warblers hanging on.

This young flava Wagtail has been lingering around Howar
