Huge wimbrel fall in Stenness

I have just been out to see the Whimbrel flock that Erik Meek reported on orkbird.. They are in a field near Millquoy, Stenness. This is just up the back road to Stenness going from the mill of Ireland off the Orphir road The birds are in the fields to the right on the brow of the hill. There have been fifty or more and I counted twentyeight. Not only are they rare, unusual and fantastic sight but they also sound amazing as they are calling back and forth…don’t miss out as they will be gone all to soon.
