There seemed to be a few more migrants in at Kilminning today. It was perfect for migration last night with light north westerly winds and lots of stars. On such nights we lose the vagrants but gain the normal winter visitors. This morning there was a new fieldfare, more redwings and more blackcaps. At least one yellow-browed warbler and some of the chiffchaffs were still present. This autumn has been great for blackcaps, with the highest numbers I have ever seen here. Some of the elder bushes have had nearly double figures in them.
