17th July

There were still an impressive 1,800 Arctic Terns roosting at Bewan but there was no sign of any other Tern species mixed in with them; the only new birds today involved the continuing turnover of waders with a big influx of 110 Sanderling and 75 Redshank including a flock of 37 seen flying south at sea.   One of yesterday's Pochards was still on Hooking along with an increased 11 Wigeon.

Most of the Fulmars now have small chicks but they can still projectile vomit impressive distances - it was quite a risk getting this photo!
