6th August

Yet another exciting day with a long awaited juvenile TWO-BARRED CROSSBILL by the observatory in the morning, with a 2nd juvenile coming in to the evening linnet roost at Holland House. Shortly after the discovery of the first two-barred crossbill a buff-breasted sandpiper was found amongst 300 golden plover near Kirbest, and after two days unnoticed the PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER was seen again at The Old Kirk. Other sightings through the day included 2 greenshank and 2 whimbrel on Gretchen Loch, a willow warbler at Holland and a common sandpiper in Inglis Geo.
63 storm petrels were trapped overnight.
