8th - 9th June

With coverage as good as halved this week and the cover growing increasingly taller and thicker, June tends to be a tricky month on North Ronaldsay. Nevertheless the Quail continues to sing at Ancum and the Chiffchaff at Holland, whilst a Kestrel, 2 Woodpigeons and 2 Collared Doves were the only notable migrants on 8th. The 9th threw in a surprise with a Hawfinch at Holland House, the latest ever spring record, and the few other migrants were a Spotted Flycatcher, a Willow Warbler and 4 Black-tailed Godwits.
