Dotterel and Little Stint on North Uist today.

Post by BrianR » 10 May 2016, 20:07

A ♂ Dotterel was discovered by the Cokers on the machair south of Loch Paible this morning. It was still present this afternoon. Also at the loch was a Little Stint (found by Speyside Wildlife).

Some more migrants for yesterday on North Uist (seen by Martin Gillingham/the Cokers) included Blackcap, Whitethroat and Spotted Flycatcher. All had moved on by this morning. Martin did see a House Martin today and also the faded Glaucous Gull as well as the Glaucous x Herring Gull hybrid.

The Dotterel was still present today and Jason et al. saw two Little Stints at Loch Paible.

Also a ♂ Ruff was at Loch a' Roe (Aird an Rùnair), there was a Spotted Flycatcher in Ben Risary plantation (Sue and Roger) while down on Benbecula a ♂ Garganey was photographed by Craig.
