24th September. The Week Before Shetland

The week before my Shetland trip came up with the goods once again with a cracking adult Sandhill Crane at Loch of Strathbeg, Aberdeenshire. With the last bird, on Orkney foiling my plans by departing, this was a welcome pull back.

Back on the patch things have been very quiet with no waders since last weekends Ruff. A couple of fugitive Ruddy Ducks paid a brief visit last week, a valuable patch tick of this now scarce duck.
