21st July

Demonstrating the value of taking regular tea breaks, a group of at least 8 Orcas was seen from the conservatory during a short rest from trap building. The pod lingered in the North Ronaldsay Firth long enough for all present to enjoy good views before departing to the west.

A Greenshank was the most interesting bird sighting, although the Arctic Terns at Bewan numbered at least 2170 individuals and a Manx Shearwater passed by at sea.
