Scatness; 10 Whooper Swan.
Quendale Mill; 2 Chiffchaff at the Quary, Yellow-browed Warbler and Reed Wabler in the Iris beds and a Grey Wagtail on the stream.
Another try for the Arctic Warbler at Cott, Weisdale Voe; 5 Chaffinch and a Brambling on route. After a two hour wait the Arctic Warbler finally gave itself up, showing quite well in the sycamore we had decided to stake out.
