A quite day with all day drizzle and fairly windy at times. The pied fly was still about, a few laplands and 2 redpoll flying around west town early on.

The juv stonechat was still about and nice views of Gers pied fly again this eve.
Another nice day, bit of a clear out over night. 2 greenland redpoll became 3 this afternoon in west town. 20 twite were very flighty over the football pitch. A lapland at the east end never settled.
