Lone piper

Curlew Sandpiper remains (Graeme Duncan)

23rd September comments: The islands remain quiet and not much to report from today's observations. The most noticeable highlight was two juvenile Long-tailed Skuas, north, and it appears to be turning into a bit of a purple patch for them. The first autumn Pink-footed Geese moved west over the islands whilst the Curlew Sandpiper remains on Brownsman.

The team took on a full sweep of the outer group for Seal pups, but sadly no sign and we still await our first pup of the year. It won't be long before we have hundreds of the little white pups, but for now, nothing.
