rough, windy day with a strong, cold NNW wind raking the island; it was tough
going in the field but birds seen did include 87 Knot (the majority being
juveniles), 4 Ruff, 12 Black-tailed Godwit, a Greenshank, 2 Green Sandpipers, a
juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull (the first one for a while), a Woodpigeon and
the Shorelark which reappeared again at Westness.
