Migrant trickle

Bit of an arrival of Sedgies today with at least 8 singing at Howaback and one at Bosquoy, there was even one in a garden by the Harray Stores (where I went to buy especially yummy donuts). Bird of the day was a dark phase Arctic Skua which paid a brief visit to the  Shunan, causing wader panic. Swallow numbers were up and there was again a Sand Martin at Howaback. Three Blackwits and at least three Dunlin on The Shunan. Otherwise a day for mending the track and gardening.

Might be worth a bit of a seawatch first thing tomorrow....

Only took one pic all day, Garden Tiger larvae, which the dog promptly rolled on (it survived).
