20th to 22nd July

The Roseate Tern was back in the Westness Tern colony on the 21st, but it was only present in the morning and has been looked for several times before and after so it obviously visits other parts of the island too. Otherwise it's been returning Waders which have generated the most interest, with a couple of Green Sandpipers on Ancum Loch on 20th, a single near the Observatory the next day when the first Greenshank of the Autumn flew over, the first juvenile Ruff was at Holm on 22nd and 1047 Golden Plovers were counted.
