18th - 19th July

Three Sandwich Terns and 90 Dunlin were the bird highlights on 18th but there was another notable influx of waders on the following day with Dunlin shooting up to 193 and Golden Plover increasing to 940 birds scattered around the island; with them came our fourth Pectoral Sandpiper of the year on Ancum Loch in the afternoon.   The big Arctic Tern gathering at Bewan is still present and is still scrutinised in depth most days but nothing else could be picked out in amongst them this afternoon.

 The Tysties continue to do well including this young bird who is very near fledging.
