25th July

A couple of Wood Sandpipers, having discovered the feeding potential of Gretchen Loch's gooey perimeter, were exploring the mat of floating algae in the company of a juvenile Ruff. Elsewhere, there was little change to report: 2 Common Terns were with 2700 Arctic Terns at Bewan and a few Sooty and Manx Shearwaters passed by the seawatching hide.

The Ruff was only the second one this year.

It has been quite a good year for Wood Sandpipers: today's two are about the eighth and ninth so far.
