2015 provided another brilliant season on North Ronaldsay. With Northern Harrier, Veery, Pechora Pipit, a couple Citrine Wagtails, Booted, Blyth's Reed, Subalpine and three Greenish Warblers, Rustic Bunting, Woodchat Shrike, a couple White-rumped Sandpipers, an American Golden Plover and Great Shearwater recorded to name just a few highlights. Impressive movements of Long-tailed Skuas in the spring and several falls of land-birds in the autumn. On top of that Cetaceans provided much excitement with a Humpbacked Whale in October and several sightings of Orcas!
