There was a hint of some migrants this morning at Fife Ness. I stopped at Craighead because I saw a chiffchaff in one of the ashes. Always a good sign. So I stayed a few minutes and sure enough a spotted flycatcher appeared. I then found a garden warbler at lower Kilminning, again frequenting the elder bushes by the newly rebuilt bench. A couple of whimbrels were on the shore at Sauchope to finish. But overall the weather is too good. The easterlies too light, and too little rain. A fine, warm autumn, great for migrants to head off and past, but not to stop.
