In 2003, the gully that seems to funnel many migrants through it-the backroad that leads out of the village north towards Mains of Slains-yielded the second Pied Wheatear within half a mile of the previous record found 4 years previously in the Slains area. This bird was found on the 23rd October on a recently manured field, and it stayed until the 28th. It proved to be very confiding.
