The 28th was a very different story a moulting adult Slavonian Grebe was seen briefly off the links in the afternoon, another first for the autumn was a Goldfinch at Senness. The golf course also played host to 7 Snow Buntings and a single Kestrel. Good numbers of Merlin were recorded with 4 individuals being present, wader numbers remained pretty much as they were, 3 Grey Plover, 2 Ruff, 4 Jack Snipe, 16 Bar-tailed Godwits and 476 Snipe being the highlights. 23 Woodpigeon were seen flying North-West over Holland, which is a record count breaking the previous record of 22 set in 1998. Other highlights include 4 Whinchat, 1 Garden Warbler, 6 Blackcap, 4 Chiffchaff, 1 Willow Warbler, 3 Goldcrests, 28 Lapland Buntings and 2 Yellow-browed Warblers. The big highlight of the day was an Ortolan Bunting that stopped briefly at the Kirbest crop.
