|Ruff and a pair of Little Stint|
Yorkshire for migrating rb, spotted and pied flycatchers, goshawk. I was also the only person on the east coast not to see a barred warbler - although there were garden warblers, lesser whitethroat and black caps in abundance and all the greylag geese (seriously, are there any left anywhere else). And despite also being in the area last week - I did not go to see the masked shrike.
And then I went to Orkney. For six hours. For an interview. At which I was NOT successful. Then I slept and drove 7 hours home. Again (three times now) passing the snowy owl, because the winds on Ben Mcdui were gusting 60mph. Not fair.
So now I'm all out of mileage, I'm not leaving the island for a month. Natalie out.
|Most of the Orkney action was on the ferry|
