Autumn migration boosts Obs year list

A Spotted Redshank went south past Whitburn Obs early morning with a general movement of Redshank. My Obs year list hasn't moved much lately except for the Bridled Tern (Yeeaahhh) so it was good to see some migration today. Spotted Redshank and Grey Wagtail brought my 2014 list to 140. A Coal Tit has been seen around the obs on a number of occasions recently and i hope to nail it soon. This is what i saw today in order of appearance
