1st-2nd October

 An absolutely mental couple of days, the Easterlies didn't disappoint and we were rewarded with two mega Sibes that we could have only dreamed of when the winds kicked off. I think the best way to tackle this post is just to give totals for certain species.

The totals for the 1st were somewhat less than the 2nd but equally impressive. 

A Curlew Sandpiper was on Ancum while there were singles of Corncrake, Redstart, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Pied Flycatcher and Red-backed Shrike. Other numbers were made up of 5 Robin, 4 Ring Ouzel, 14 Blackcap, 4 Chiffchaff, 3 Willow Warbler, 19 Yellow-browed Warblers, 6 Goldcrest and 18 Brambling. The second Red-throated Pipit of the year was in the obs crop were it spent the afternoon giving poor views. The undoubtable moment of the day was a stunning White's Thrush trapped at Holland. Only the second island record and something for everyone to savour the bird was released in Holland where it spent the rest of the day and the following one.

The 2nd involved a massive fall with increases of migrants across the board. 12 Jack Snipe, 6 Ruff, a Greenshank, a Short-eared Owl, a Kestrel, a Buzzard, the Corncrake was still present, 735 Redwing, 186 Song Thrush, 9 Fieldfare, 4 Ring Ouzel, a Dunnock, 57 Robin, 12 Redstart, 3 Whinchat, a Stonechat, 2 Grasshopper Warblers, 68 Blackcap, a Garden Warbler, 3 Willow Warblers, 4 Chiffchaff, 21 Yellow-browed Warblers, 43 Goldcrest, 2 Barred Warbler, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, 1 Pied Flycatcher, 50 Brambling, 23 Chaffinch, 22 Snow Buntings and 3 Little Buntings. Phew. 

The big highlight of the day was yet another mega rare Thrush. This time in the shape of a rather stunning Eyebrowed Thrush that spent the afternoon between Waterhouse and Phisligar often giving stunning views, it was an unexpected treat following the previous days bird. 

We seem to be on a bit of a role and long may it continue!
