I went out before work yesterday to look for Lapland Buntings on Birsay Links, motivated by the numbers currently on North Ronaldsay but to no avail. However, the Sand Martins were in and a Chiffchaff was lurking near Palace Stores.
Following a meeting in Kirkwall a lunchtime visit to the PDC located the LRP and it was seen well in flight, heard and scoped on the deck. 7th Orkney record apparently, I would be surprised if the 8th, 9th and 10th don't follow fairly shortly.
An evening trip to Binsgarth Woods today found Willow Warbler singing.
There is a report of 15 Laps on East Mainland today so another visit to The Links at the weekend is called for I think, surely some will come back through there.
