Two Red-throated Diver were the best on offer.
Wildfowl and Waders
The Brent Goose flock held 167 pale-bellied and 2 dark-bellied birds – one of which is considered, in some circles, to be a potential first-winter Black Brant.
Grounded Migrants
The wintering Woodpigeon flock held 300 birds and the Mistle Thrush was again present.
At least 7 Little Egret continue to roam the island and a Short-eared Owl was logged. The Hooded Crow put in another appearance.
