28th May

We still have the brisk south-easterly wind, but the lack of any rain or significant cloud has seen few new birds grounded today. The Pectoral Sandpiper remains on Ancum Loch with the male Blue-headed Wagtail also still there. Waders feeding on the tide-line at Westness included a Little Stint, plus 15 Knot and 34 Dunlins among the expected commoner species. The female Red-backed Shrike was still present, as were 13 Snow Buntings and a Swift was over the Observatory in the afternoon. More to report tomorrow hopefully...
