1st - 2nd September

The Autumn's first Lapland Bunting arrived on 1st whilst the Spotted Redshank remained both days as did the 3 Common Rosefinches at Holland House; all of which we assume, were trapped and ringed on 2nd. A Little Stint and Wood Sandpiper on Gretchen Loch on 1st were followed by 3 of the former at Trolla Vatn the next day, when an altogether busier day produced 4 Barred Warblers, the first 2 Goldcrests, a Robin was new at the Lighthouse, 4 Whinchat, a Tree Pipit, 13 White Wagtails, 3 Swifts, 2 Garden Warblers and 3 Whimbrel. Meanwhile seawatching improved with 17 Sooty and 21 Manx Shearwater, a 'Blue' Fulmar and 4 Storm Petrels.
