26th October 2019

A wet and windy day today and no nets were opened. The rain finished at about 9am and the wind also picked up around this time. There was no sign of the Isabelline Wheatear (Isabellastenskvätta) during a search of the south end of the island this morning, but the conditions were less than ideal and there are plenty of places that it could hide from the wind! A Black Redstart (Svart rödstjärt) was by the obs and a Grey Wagtail (Forsälare) was seen at Kummelhålet. At Södra Udden a flock of Twite (Vinterhämpling) was foraging.
