26th to 28th June

Many of the birds from the last few days were seen again during the period with the Black Tern relocating to Gretchen Loch from 26th to 27th, the Marsh Warbler at Holland gardens again on 27th and singing Quails from different sites on 27th and 28th. Golden Plover numbers have built gradually with 92 on 27th, increasing to 123 by 28th with 5 Knot and 2 Black-tailed Godwits also present. A first-summer Whooper Swan at Bridesness on 28th was somewhat unseasonal, with late Spotted Flycatchers on 26th and 28th, 4 Crossbills on 27th and 2 Mealy Redpolls on 28th more traditional fare for the time of year.
