Incredibly quiet at the north-east end of the isle today. After a night of torrential rain and south-easterlies, one might have expected better of the day. Out at lunchtime for a wander around in warm, calm conditions, and just a Robin kicking around the house and a Chiffchaff in the plantation to show for my efforts. Significantly fewer Blackbirds around after days of plague proportions – the tattie yard peaked at 11 birds on Sunday.

Little Bunting still at Sandwick, and BM reported a possible second bird nearby. My bird from the weekend having moved down the isle? My hens have discovered where I am seed-baiting for buntings, and clean it out in the space of 15 frenzied minutes. I shall just have to start somewhere else away from their prying eyes.

Got an informed opinion about my snipe earlier in the autumn. Interesting!
