6 points, nice
It hung around all day, viewable from the garden as well. A small trickle of observers came to pay homage, quite an awkward species to see on Orkney. I'd long predicted a shrike in the hawthorn hedge at The Shunan so doubly pleasing.
Back for toast and coffee this was on the feeders, rather overdue for the year.
Other good things around the patch were two Hen Harriers, a pair of Tufted Duck, pair of summer plumage Red-throated Divers on Loch of Bosquoy and a late evening Short-eared Owl.
An evening trip to Palace found two Snow Buntings on the beach and the 2cy Glaucous Gull.
