11th September

New birds continue to trickle in as the south-easterly winds continued for another day. A brief Wryneck at the Observatory was new with 2 Barred Warblers (lingering bird at Sennessand a likely new one at South Ness) and a Yellow-browed Warbler (Ancum House) the main highlights. Some of the commoner migrants could more easily be attributed to newcomers with most of the 3 Kestrels, a Common Tern, Woodpigeon, 5 White Wagtails, a Redstart, Fieldfare, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Blackcap, 6 Willow Warblers and 4 Pied Flycatchers considered freshly arrived.
