21st July 2016 Rain clearing W1

Steady rain persisted for all of the morning that finally cleared early in the afternoon. In the hope that a few Waders may have been grounded we checked the likely spots and six Sanderling were present on Skaw beach along with 47 Arctic Terns. A seawatch from Lamba Ness produced an adult Little Gull flying north and there was a Green Sandpiper on one of the pools. A trip to Baltasound produced 65 Curlews and a single Whimbrel.
