LB-bG makes airspace
The "in the garden" list gained one today as Lesser Black-backed Gull made airspace. The garden also had record numbers of Greenfinch, at least 12, probably 16, three of which were ringed and Chaffinch, 2 males.
Late afternoon the Shunan held a good roost of Oystercaters, 310 counted yesterday.
A late afternoon trip to Loch of Skaill found at least 6 Slavonian grebes in various stages of dressing for summer, 9 Barnacle Geese, 9 Whooper Swans and the usual selection of Goldeneye, Red-breasted Mergansers and Long-tailed Duck.
