Fed up I went down to Ness Point the most easterly point in the UK. I had not seen a Purple Sandpiper this year and this is a renowned site for this bird. On arrival I noted a few Turnstones but nothing else. I took a short walk and located 4 Brent Geese and a Red-throated Diver flying south.
Arriving back where I started I now found 20 Turnstones and thankfully a single Purple Sandpiper. The latter performed very well and I got some nice pictures.
