Pied Flycatchers also showed an increase with 8 in various island locations and even more surprisingly a Red-breasted Flycatcher found its way into the conservatory and was eventually caught and ringed.
Other singles included a Redstart at the Old Kirk, a House Martin, a lone Rock Pipit and another Wryneck this time in the Kirbest crop field.
Waders did well again, a Greenshank flew over the obs and the Wood Sandpiper was back on Gretchen accompanied by a Little Stint, a Curlew Sandpiper was also present.
Last but by no means least 5 Lapland Buntings at different locations and 5 Chaffinch in the road by the coastguard hut.
