On the land a single Lesser Whitethroat was at the Post Office, 2 Common Whitethroats, 3 Spotted Flycatchers, 7 Pied Flycatchers, singles of Reed Warbler at Scottigar and a Redstart at the Stormie hut, a further 2 Barred Warblers at Holland and Upper Linnay and an extra Red-backed Shrike down at the obs provided the same amount of excitement as in previous days, despite the clear departure of commoner migrants.
Waders continued to be a staple in our birdy diet with 5 Little Stint, 3 Greenshank and 2 Wood Sandpipers frequenting pools and lochs around the island.
Another bird that caught our eye was a melanistic Grey Heron on the loch at Garso, not as good as we first thought it was going to be but definitely a noteworthy addition.
The weather looks set to continue in the same way, so no rest for the wicked as they say and we'll be out looking for more!
