Here they come.

Here they come at last - a decent amount of birds kicking around the patch, pity that the weather was so shite, with force 5 winds and lots of rain ! After 2 changes of clothes and minus a baseball cap (blew off over the cliff), today's thrash resulted in -1 Lesser Whitethroat, 20 Song Thrushes, 4 Goldcrest, 3 Brambling, 4 Common Redpoll, 3 Wheatear (including the re-appearance of the albino), 23 Lapland Buntings, 1 Dunnock, 5 Chiffchaff, 1 Whinchat, 2 Blackcap, 1 Robin, 1 Garden Warbler, 1 Fieldfare, 1 Siskin and the star of the show - a Red-breasted Flycatcher - not only a patch tick, but bird number 200 on my Scatness list !

Red-breasted Flycatcher. (crap photo in crap weather).



Song Thrushes.

Albino Wheatear.

In light of recent incedents of a tour group climbing over walls and cutting through gardens, a new neighbourhood watch scheme has been set up at Scatness -
