Dip and...

Dipped the Lesser-legs,, an uncharacteristic delayed response to the info resulted in the need to search and fail... So it goes. However a Ruff was a bit of a consolation prize and there were 282 Eider in the bay off Carness, but no likely suspects.

The moth trap produced the goods though with The Gothic and this (see below) which is maybe Mere Wainscott (Small Dotted Buff, just a poorly marked one) any help much appreciated.

Today found me hunting waders on some of the local beaches, Sanderling, Knot, Greenshanks were nice with significantly more Lapwings around and a small flock of Golden Plover. An hour or so seawatching in calm, misty conditions produced a single Sooty.

Yesterday, Loch of Bosquoy produced a Greenshank, more broods of Tufted, two broods of Gadwall, two broods of Little Grebe and a Hen Harrier.
