Some Ness news from Tony for last few days

Post by BrianR » 23 May 2015, 09:57

Ruff - Tony Marr
20th: four Pink-footed Geese by Loch Stiapavat (also following two days), a 1st-winter Iceland Gull on the machair nearby and five Whimbrel at the Butt of Lewis. Also a small number of passage waders on the machair near Lionel school.

21st: at Loch Stiapavat the 1st-winter Little Gull remained in the Black-headed Gull colony (also yesterday) and there was a ♂ Ruff displaying to three Redshanks (after 10 minutes all flew off N).

22nd: two 1st-winter Iceland Gulls were at the roadside pool near the lighthouse, nine Whimbrel were nearby, there were two Black-tailed Godwits on flooded machair at Five Penny (also a Sand Martin there) and a large increase in the number of small waders on the machair (345 Dunlin, 460 Ringed Plover, 38 Turnstone and a Curlew Sandpiper).

Tim saw only three Pomarine Skuas and two single Long-tails after the last posting from Aird an Runair yesterday. Both the Long-tails came over the car park.
