9th September

The sun was back out again and although it was a quieter day than expected the early indications from ringing at Holland were of a handful of newly arrived, lightweight migrants. Singles of Wood Warbler, Redstart and Common Rosefinch trapped and ringed were however likely to be birds from the previous day, but most of the 7 Willow Warblers were new. A flock of 21 Ruff were in the fields nearby and there were 19 Black-tailed Godwits in the Bridesness area. 7 Tufted Ducks and 2 Pochards were also there, a couple of Hen Harriers seen and single Tree Pipit and Common Redpoll were the best of the rest.
