21st September

There was an obvious clear-out of the vast majority of the recent migrants with both the Shrike and the Pipit seemingly moving on. Highlights on what felt like a 'static' day were 4 Barred Warblers (2 Ancum Willows, Holland and a new bird at Westness), a Wryneck near Garso, a Red-breasted Flycatcher at Holland, 2 Yellow-browed Warblers (Holland and a new bird at Bridesness) and 3 Common Rosefinch (Holland and 2 at Westness, at least 1 of which will be new). Other passerines included a Grey Wagtail, 2 'flava' Wagtails at Westness, 2 Ring Ouzels, the first Redwing of the autumn, 15 Chaffinch and a Lapland Bunting while 11 Grey Herons included a flock of 9 together at Bridesness.
