12th May

The first sedge warbler was singing at Ancum Loch, 5 house martin and a sand martin were seen and an osprey flew though heading north. A willow warbler was along the west dyke, 2 chiffchaff at the north end and another at Holland, with 3 collared dove there also. 2 jackdaw and a carrion crow were in the south and 2 curlew sandpiper were on Trolla Vatn Loch, but bird of the day came late in the evening with an adult summer mediterranean gull in a ploughed field at Cott with 17 lesser black-backed gulls and 88 herring gulls.

Thanks to all for a fantastic day aon North Ronaldsay. Although only beginers at spotting we were warmly welcomed and came away enthralled by the islands bird life.
Only wish we had booked more than one night
