Musselburgh, 18th July 2017

The day started with a Siskin over the Edinburgh garden - another quick Musselburgh trip was then in order for the morning before other stuff later in the day. Highlights today included two each of Greenshank, Common Sandpiper and Black-tailed Godwit. Other bits included 480 Eiders, 117 Goosanders, 102 Mute Swans, the Wigeon, four Common and 12 Velvet Scoters, two Red-throated Divers, a Fulmar, 83 Bar-tailed Godwits, 97 Dunlin, representatives of all the common auks and a lone Grey Partridge. Several juvenile Herring Gulls and a juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull were at the River Esk mouth.
