29th-30th June

An unsettled couple of days with just a handful of noteworthy sightings. On 29th 4 smart Black-tailed Godwits dropped into Ancum loch and the Golden Plover flock grew once more to 139 birds. A surprise on 30th was the re-appearance after several days absence of the Golden Oriole with a couple of sightings in the Holland/Observatory area in the afternoon. The Pied Flycatcher continues to linger and a new Willow Warbler was caught in the Observatory traps while 2 hours of seawatching from the hide in the morning recorded 35 Storm Petrels and 14 Manx Shearwaters among the local species.

The humble House Sparrow!
