20th September

There were limited new arrivals but lingering rarities, including both the Daurian (Isabelline) Shrike and Olive-backed Pipit both showed well again at times during the day. A flighty Pectoral Sandpiper near Kirbest was the best new arrival and along a similar theme an adult Curlew Sandpiper joined the long staying juvenile on the Lochs at the North end. Also seen were 2 Jack Snipe, a 'flava' Wagtail, 2 Tree Pipit, a Grasshopper Warbler (trapped at the Observatory), Reed Warbler, 2 Yellow-browed Warblers (both at Holland), 2 Red-breasted Flycatchers (Beacon and Holland) and the Common Rosefinch (Holland).
