20th August

Very few birds new in and just a handful of yesterdays migrants still around. A redstart was on the West dyke by the airfield with another at the Surgery, and willow warblers had dwindled to 10 birds. The pied flycatcher remained at Greenwall as did whitethroats at Seness and Twinyess. A hen harrier was feeding around the Nether Linnay area where 2 whinchat and a common crossbill were seen, and ruff on Gretchen Loch had doubled to 8 individuals. 4 garden warblers and a reed warbler turned up in mist nets at Holland, with another of the latter species still present at Nether Linnay.
