In a northerly wind, Scatness had a proper wintry feel about the place, and the birds made it feel even more so, with 10 Whooper Swans and 38 Wigeon on the Loch, 30+ Snow Buntings out on the headland and 2 Pink-footed Geese still in one of the fields. The Pectoral Sandpiper was on the Loch shore for a while until flying off towards Moast beach (though no sign of it there, when checked later). Female Blackcap in the garden.
