6th September

TIREE: Juvenile PECTORAL SANDPIPER at Loch Bhasapol (presume the long-staying bird from August) – together with 1 juv Wood Sandpiper, 1 Ruff and 1 Greenshank (part of a remarkable flock of 7 waders of 7 species – the others being 1 Snipe, 1 Redshank and 1 Lapwing!) (all Keith Gillon per John Bowler). Probable BARRED WARBLER seen briefly in flight at Balemartine at 2pm – Keith Gillon (presumably the Balephuil bird).
ISLAY: Juv CURLEW SANDPIPER again at Loch Gruinart – also 5 Ruff and a juv Greenshank still there (Jim Dickson).
