Wknd 23-24 October

Did the final BigVis count on Sunday (too much rain Saturday); on arrival at Ferny Ness 25 Waxwings were approaching from south, continued high N over the Forth, plus one heard soon after. A good passage of Fieldfare with 7 flocks totalling 335, all arriving from SW or coasting, continuing W. 69 Siskin SW in one hour. Full counts on trektellen.

Sunday afternoon, Kittiwakes spotted moving into Forth, 2 flocks totalling 105 SW, and a single juv Gannet. Immediately following another beautiful sunset all the Pinks and more came back at dusk, a flock of c. 6470 NE over Ferny Ness at 18:20hrs (updated counts)

Saturday morning - 3 Barnacle Geese out on Aberlady mud after the Pinks had departed (and 302+ Shelduck); later noted two Jays near the Tyne at Lennoxlove.
