Continuing easterly brough more migrants to Tory including a possible turbergi Yellow Wagtail, which would be a first for Tory . Hope fully Brad Robson will send me a trip report which I can post.

He had 5 Blackcap in the garden and the lake has been busy with 20 Barnacle Geese and 4 Greylag with one Brent noted. 4 to 5 Linnet have been present during the week and 2 Twite were seen feeding in the garden. Good numbers of Redwing have been passing north with up to 12 a day. 10 to 15 Tree Sparrow are back in residence. A WOOD Pigeon was seen during the week and up to 6 Collared Dove.
3 Swallow were seen today with the first one two weeks ago. One Iceland Gull remains. Possible breeders include four Reed Bunting a female Blackbird two Song Thrush and a single DunnocK .
