15th November

North Ronaldsay's record Tundra Bean Goose count was toppled once again, with 23 now present around the island. The number of European White-fronted Geese had increased to 39, and a single Greenland White-fronted Goose was found among them. The Barnacle Goose and 2 Pink-footed Geese were also still around and a fourth Scaup joined the 3 already present. Other sightings included a Sparrowhawk, the 2 Woodpigeons and 2 Black Redstarts.

Divers, including a few Great Northern Divers, have been more visible than usual during the relatively calm weather of recent days.
