Warm, calm and sunny again so most of the day was spent searching for Tystie nests and going through the remaining Arctic Tern colonies (there was a fledged and flying juvenile on the north Links!) so there was not too much time for much else; birds seen here and there included an impressive 5 Red-necked Phalaropes now on Gretchen, the Black-tailed Godwit still and 110 Turnstone, 16 Sanderling and 3 Knot at the top of The Links, roosting around the Tern colony.

                Caught a new Leach’s Petrel at Twingness, near the Obs overnight along with 20 Storm Petrels.

More Red-necked Phalaropes
