Bird showed obvious orange tones to the bill, plus other very subtle features related to borealis. Sails were only apparent when aggressive. Useful comments welcome

Cretzschmar’s Bunting, Buff-bellied Pipit, Collared Flycatcher, Red-flanked Bluetail, Spotted Sandpiper, Hume’s Leaf Warbler and 2x Pacific Golden Plovers are just some of the highlights of an excellent 2008 on North Ronaldsay. Despite such a list the island remains frighteningly under watched, so why not come and stay in 2009.
The observatory offers both guest house and hostel accomodation
