5th - 6th July

Just a quick update detailing a couple of sightings with three Red-necked Phalaropes seen together briefly on Ancum Loch on the 5th and a cracking adult Lesser Yellowlegs found in the evening of the 6th; initially seen on Kirbest scrape, then briefly along the coast at Brides before finally being pinned down on Gretchen Loch later in the evening where it gave excellent views to the assembled staff before flying off high to the north. A long overdue first for North Ronaldsay!

The Lesser Yellowlegs didn't settle until quite late in the evening, so this is the best photo we managed.
