4th September

A rare dry day with a moderate southerly wind saw a handful of newcomers found during census along with a few lingering birds of interest. The Pectoral Sandpiper remains on Gretchen Loch and 33 Black-tailed Godwits were also present there. A Curlew Sandpiper at the north end was new, as was a Kestrel and there were now 2 Common Rosefinches-the lingering bird in the Kirbest crop and a new individual at Nether Linnay. Also of note today were a Sand Martin, Black Redstart, 118 Wheatears and a Lapland Bunting.
