After seeing the Semipalmated Sandpiper at Balgarva this morning, I visited The Range where there were 7 Ruff and 21 Black-tailed Godwits at Kilaulay and 60+ Wigeon on Loch Bee , the most I have seen this autumn. Here at Askernish, the Lesser Redpolls now number circa 50 and there are 30+ Goldfinch.
