A pretty decent day on the patch, which started wit a long overdue Redstart (none in the spring !) in the garden and a fly over Greenshank. Elsewhere at Scatness there were 2 Blackcaps, a Willow Warbler, a Garden Warbler, 9 'alba' Wagtails, 3 Arctic Terns, 2 Whimbrel and 3 Ruff.
The Little Stint on Scord Beach was well and truly murdered as it showed down to 6 feet (eventually).
Still a bit tough going, with the south easterly touching force 7 this afternoon ! A bit of the wet stuff forecast for tonight, so hopefully the patch should be swamped with migrants in the morning, but as this is Scatness, it probably won't be !
