22nd June

The 2 Little Terns were still in Linklet Bay, and 3 Manx Shearwaters passed by at sea, but there was really nothing else worth reporting. The day's ringing expedition was to the Common Gull colonies in the north of the island, where numerous chicks were found hiding among the stone walls and long grass.

There are several Common Gull colonies on North Ronaldsay, with birds nesting on the ground or on top of the low dykes (walls).
