Yesterday brought a Large White Egret to South Ronaldsay, very tickable but although it would be a UK tick I didn't feel very enthusiastic, thought I might be able to find it today or in the week, and didn't bother; no sign today.
The sunshine today brought out plenty of Green-veined Whites and a couple of Red Admirals, but more interestingly lots of Common Heath at Loch of Bosquoy and an interesting micro which I'm not sure I've got before, Syndemis musculana.
Lots of hoverflies today including this tiny but delightful Neoascia sp (probably podagrica).

Driving lessons today took in Yesnaby, and Mollie enjoyed Scottish Primrose.
Lots more to write about and pictures to post but time to find Crex crex, methinks.
