It's about time.

After checking all the beaches on a daily basis for the last few weeks and seeing sod all, it was about time that some waders did the descent thing and came through Scatness. Starting off at Scord Beach it just looked like another day of nothing with just 2 Dunlin and a Sanderling, Sanblister Beach was little better with 5 Sanderling, the final beach, Moast, was much better - 86 Sanderling, 53 Dunlin and 2 Knot - let's hope that the seaweed on the beach remains and maybe attract the odd rarity or two. The only other thing of note was a few hundred Arctic Terns in West Voe.

Dunlin (with Sanderling).
