27th May

In strong south-easterly winds little was seen in the morning, but in the afternoon a smart Pectoral Sandpiper was found feeding around the muddy fringes of Ancum Loch. Like yesterday's Lark North Ronaldsay has amassed a total of nearly 40 'Pecs', mainly in autumn, with today's being just the seventh in spring. Passerine sightings were limited with 2 Blue-headed Wagtails on Ancum the highlight, while the long staying female Red-backed Shrike remains along with 25 Snow Buntings. Also seen were a Common Sandpiper, the first Merlin for a month and 2 Collared Doves.
