Some good sightings up there Ian. Probably not the best time of the year for the Farnes. There is currently a white-rumped sandpiper down here on Banks Marsh - so definite "irruption" then!

Heading home tomorrow but a great week of birding. Further highlights were some great seawatching with Little Auk, Pomarine Skua and possible Surf Scoter. On the land we had Yellow-browed Warbler, Lapland Bunting and Water Pipit. I think my best memories will be of the daily dose of waders on the sea-weed at high tide. I've updated my blog to include today:
