22nd and 23rd June



Six Golden Plover on the 22nd were the only birds of any vague intrest on that date. The next day was following the same pattern with two Whimbrel at the north end of the island being the only half descent sighting until Pete Donnelly rang me to say he had what he believed to be a TAWNY PIPIT. To cut a long story short Iwas soon joining him and sure enough we were looking at a Tawny Pipit, a first for the island and the 4th for Orkney if one from the mainland last year is accepted by SBRC..
