Struggling to remember what I did yesterday.... (oh yes, horsey stuff) however, today was pretty good. Started with a rather damp and cold walk around Birsay with a few migrants, Sand Martins, Wheatears, Robin, White Wagtail, Chiffchaff and a singing Sedge Warbler. Back home The Shunan was duck city but the hoped for Garganey has still not revealed itself. However, star bird appeared on cue, under the feeders just as I was getting ready to do a bit of painting (the walls, not some avant garde masterpiece).
In the afternoon the Sun came out, more horsey stuff to do but a bit of birding too included Arctic Tern at Howaback.
