14th November

New birds were in short supply, but a flock of 180 Snow Buntings flying south over the island was the first significant movement of that species for a while. Counts of noteworthy landbirds came to 8 Woodcocks, 2 Woodpigeons, 5 Long-eared Owls, 4 Short-eared Owls, 4 Dunnocks and 2 Black Redstarts. Lingering wildfowl included 28 European White-fronted Geese, 5 Tundra Bean Geese, 2 Scaups, 4 Common Scoters and the Goosander.
