 In focus Sanderling...

A day spent looking for and at waders. 350 Curlew around Bosquoy yesterday morning where there were 450 Lapwing today, when there were still 100 or so on The Shunan. There continues to be a Dunlin and a couple of Ruff on The Shunan. Birsay held 19 Sanderling, 15 Dunlin and a Barwit amongst the gradually increasing Turnstones and Oystercatchers, the Knot seem to have gone.

A look for The Loons Swallow roost was not aided by the person parked by the hide with their stereo on and the window open... No sign of the roost.

Dusk, Loch of Harray
