The visiting birders spotted a pair of Crossbills over at Avenvogie, a pair of Grey wagtails and a Common sandpiper on the River Sorn as well as a few Merlin on their travels. They also had seen a Little Grebe.
James had the "odd" experience today of watching the Geese on the reserve at Gruinart, and at the same time listening to a Willow Warbler. There were still just a few Swallow to be seen along the flats. Several hundred Barnies were at Rockside this afternoon, a smaller number at Sunderland, and there was a small group of Whitefronts along with them. Down at Blackrock, on the eel grass were 5 Pale bellied Brent.
