Another interesting day here, with some more unexpected patch gold action. The weather was pretty misty most of the day with the odd spot of light rain. Migrants weren't really in evidence, although...

I think the black streaking on breast and flanks rather than greyish chevrons are much better for Great Knot than Red Knot.

Still 46 over my neighbourhood in Aberdeen this evening, a similar number to what I was getting a couple of weeks ago. They're still hanging about round here.

Quite a bit was turning up on the east coast today, so I set off late in the afternoon for a thorough look around. It turned out to be very good but not in quite the way I expected.

Thanks for keeping the thread up-to-date BN. I'd heard another report of a Great Spotted Woodpecker recently, so it seems as if one has been hanging around.

Rather quiet in the strong SE wind this evening. Surprisingly little was moving at sea and waders were fairly routine, with three Dunlin the best of it. 67 Goosander and 57 Swifts were good counts.

Welcome to BirdForum, Paul. Your bird is a Swift and it looks like a young one. I suspect it's fine and has maybe only recently left the nest. It may fly off of its own accord, as it looks capable of...

1 is a Curlew because the head pattern isn't strong enough for a Whimbrel. When you see a Whimbrel, it will stand out more than this.

I can't see anything other than Herring Gulls in picture 2 and...

You should be able to see Kittiwakes and Gannets quite widely along the coast. Sometimes Kittiwakes will gather in harbours at this time of the year.
