Long periods of heavy rain made finding birds rather difficult at times, and very little of interest was found. The flock of Rock Pipits on Solfach was scrutinised from the shelter of the new hide during a particularly torrential downpour and, although the birds’ saturated plumage didn’t help matters, some probable Scandinavian Rock Pipits were noted, as well as a brief view of something that was probably a Water Pipit. A Fulmar passed the South End, where the Lapwing was still present, and 400 Starlings were counted in the lowlands. A Bullfinch was still at Cristin, while other finches included 40 Chaffinches, 15 Linnets and five Goldfinches. 20 Blackbirds, ten Song Thrushes and five Redwings were seen, and four Great Tits and a Blue Tit were still visiting the bird feeders.
