3rd June

After a bit of rain overnight, it was bright and dry through the day with an increasing southerly wind; the highlight was a lovely but very flighty and mobile adult ROSE-COLOURED STARLING which was zooming around between the Lighthouse and Scottigar, never settling for more than a few minutes.

                Other bits through the day comprised a Sparrowhawk, 70+ Knot (presumably a non-breeding flock, settling in to over-summer as most of them are grey individuals), a Little Stint still at Westness, an increase to 15+ Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 2 Sandwich Terns, a Blackcap, a Chiffchaff and 2 Spotted Flycatchers.

Rose-coloured Starling - just!
