Robert Vaughan 20th part two

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. Flushed an imm and ad water rail around the helipad, with another calling in Antons east patch. A knot was in the harbour this eve, with a single ringed plover earlier. Merlin and 2 kestrels about. Out to sea a few gannet, 2 kittiwake, a fulmar and 3 razorbill. 3 willow warbler also.

Hey Peter, great to see you and Ger out here today. Not too much to report you didn't have yourselves. 2 greenland redpoll ranging about west town, the lesser throat appeared again early morning, and an early goldcrest in the afternoon. 2 or 3 lapland buntings were up around the lighth-house, and I flushed a corncrake near the heli-pad. The juv stonechat was still about and nice views of Gers pied fly again this eve.
