Sunny day

Bay of Skaill

A very lovely day today which led to not much birding really. A late start due to enjoying a glass or two too many and staying up quite late. Had a family tramp up to the cairn south of Bay of Skaill this morning. There were plenty of Long-tailed Ducks in the bay and a Tystie off the south cliffs. Very few sea birds moving.

In the evening I had a go for the Birsay harrier / owl roost and not a harrier nor an owl did I set my eyes upon.

Birding highlight of the day was dipping Common Redpoll, it was in the tree, I raised my bins and it flew at that instant, it didn't call properly so I was left humming and harring, slightly annoying.
