24th October

Blazing westerly winds made being out in the field difficult today so migrant counts were slightly down with a Stonechat, two Black Redstarts and a Yellowhammer the highlights in amongst further reduced Thrush numbers, 41 Blackcaps and 24 Bramblings.   A good look at the sea in the afternoon produced two each of Sooty Shearwater, Bonxie and Little Auk as well as a steady movement of 450 Gannets and several Divers including three Great-northerns.   The Canada Goose remains along with the two Scaup and 8 Red-breasted Mergansers.
