New Years Day in LOTHIAN

Barns Ness: The WATER PIPIT was showing well in amongst a large mixed flock of Rock and Meadow pipits. Also good numbers of Dunlin, Sanderling, Knot, Turnstone and a single Grey Plover to name but a few.

Whitesands Bay: wintering BAIRD'S SANDPIPER showing very well after it seperated from the large wader flock mostly made up of Dunlin and Sanderling. There were a lot of people out walking on the beach today and this made tracking the bird down a lot harder as the waders flushed every time someone went near them. I eventualy got the place to myself and tracked the bird down.

Aberlady Bay: 4 Short-eared Owls hunting in the dunes out towards the point this afternoon. Fieldfares were absolutely everywhere. Still no sign of the Yellowlegs after a good search (Dennis Morrison)
