4th August

The CITRINE WAGTAIL was re-found at Bridesness for a short while before disappearing again. A willow warbler was at Holland and the ruff was still on Gretchen Loch. On The Links were 152 sanderling and 33 ringed plover, and 255 common gulls fed in recently cut hay fields. Seawatching produced just 5 manx shearwater and in the afternoon the second basking shark of the summer was in Nouster Bay, as was a grey heron.
87 storm petrel and 2 leach's petrel were trapped overnight.
