A calm & bright start to the day with light North-easterly winds, distinctly different conditions than the last ten days or so. Spirits were raised by the sighting of 3 Waxwing over at first light & the realization as the morning developed that there were a lot more 'birds in'. There were a few Blackcap, Redpoll sp, a Garden Warbler, a few Chiffchaff, good numbers of Goldcrest, a Greenfinch & a Yellowhammer. I walked down to the Havens after breakfast & had my first Waxwing of the Autumn/Winter calling overhead. On reaching the Havens a 1st year Glaucous Gull passed through North Haven & I had an adult Glaucous Gull from Buness. There were a lot more Fulmar around both out at sea & on the cliffs. I spent part of the day searching for rares & the rest chasing & photographing Fair Isle Wrens on South Haven beach as well as more Wader photography.
