A minimum of 5 Yellow-browed Warblers around the island today. Our first Brambling of the autumn was feasting on rowan berries at Northbay and a Redwing called low over my house in the early hours. The Treecreeper that's been at Creachan for the past 2 days moved over the hill to Glen. There were 6+ Blackcaps around the island and a small influx of Chaffinch and Dunnock.
