showery morning improving into a bright, sunny afternoon; a few new bits were
found through the day including 2 Herons, a Merlin, the first Grey Plover of
the autumn, 79 Knot, 9 Ruff, the Shorelark again at
Westness and the first Goldcrest of the autumn around the Obs - certainly a
dispersing youngster from Orkney rather than a Scandinavian migrant!
