Very little change so far this month, in what has been a fairly uneventful birding year...so far! Up to 2 juvenile Glaucous Gulls continue to roam around, both being seen on 10th on which date presumably the same Greenland White-fronted Goose was relocated near the Surgery. The Grey Plover was still with the Golden Plover flocks, but now at the south end it was joined by the first 2 Knot of the year on 8th-9th. The Wigeon x American Wigeon hybrid was again at Bridesness on 9th along with a couple of Shelducks while a count of 18 Goldeneyes together off Bewan on 10th was the highest for a number of years. At least 4 different Hen Harriers have been recorded but with no more than 2 on any given day and 44 Snow Buntings were logged on 10th.
