Fair Isle - Day 7 in The Puffinn Household

7.05pm - Brian is in the kitchen (as ever).
It was a very quiet day today, with hardly any passerines to speak of. Cooky had a Richard's Pipit at Field croft, plus a mystery pipit in the Heligoland trapping area. A few Wheatears were along the western slopes and that was about it.
More geese over the island today, including more Barneys and some Pink-feet, plus lots of Greylags. Mark had a summer plumage Great Northern Diver past south light this morning, and that is about it.
Tomorrow is forecast as south-easterlies, so there'll be no lie-in tomorrow. The next couple of days might be our last chance for something big.
