24th to 25th July

Despite the persistent fog causing havoc with transport to and from the island in the last couple of days there have been a few things to see. The Pacific Golden Plover was seen both days, mainly around the Holland/Mill area with at least 600 Golden Plovers for company, while 153 Dunlin and 14 Knot were counted on 24th. A Green Sandpiper was in the Gretchen area again while a juvenile Cuckoo at Westness was new. Overnight the second Leach's Petrel of the year was caught and ringed along with 17 Storm Petrels.
