To Marwick where there were plenty of Oystercatcher and Curlew on the new mown field and one summer plumage Sanderling. A few more juvenile Wheatear here and a singing Sedge Warbler.
At The Loons hide there was a Water Rail, plenty of Sedge Warblers a Greylag with an orange (local) necklace. However, just along the road at the watchpoint, a Whimbrel, two Blackwits and two Greenshank.
Back at the ranch The Shunan held juvenile Lesser and Greater Black-backed Gulls along with the usual Commons and Black-headeds. A marked paucity of waders at my local patch.
