3rd August

The PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER is still present but no sign of the citrine wagtail. A much quieter day with new arrivals being 4 willow warblers. The 2 greenshank and a ruff were still on Gretchen throughout, a single black-tailed godwit near Vincoin and the kestrel was seen around Breck. The highlight of an afternoon seawatch was of a pod of 6+ killer whales with 11 manx shearwater and 98 storm petrels also seen.
A productive stormie session resulted in 96 storm petrel and 3 leach's petrels being trapped and ringed.
