Seems like there's been a bit of a clear out on the patch with smaller numbers of almost everything - Lapland Buntings down to 7, only about 40 Skylarks about and only about 200 Meadow Pipits. The Redstart remains in the garden and a Common Sandpiper was in West Voe. 24 Pink-footed Geese went over the patch just before dinnertime - winter is on it's way ! It's pretty much 'windless' up here at the moment (at last !), so looks like a good night for the moth trap.
