I rang Anton today and he told me he had 2 Lapland Bunting on the road to the Lighthouse on the 13th. Also a Robin present for a few days and a small number of other migrants including a pale warbler in the east end. His brother reported some new birds with the Tree Sparrows at the oat field behind his house, also in the east end.
The mini fall ties in with similar falls on Arranomore in Donegal and Ortolan Bunting on Inishbofin in Galway last week.
Anton reports the island as unusually quiet for this time of year. No easterlies yet this autumn..........
I am planning to get out again on wednesday when the weather is set improve.
