Temmincks Stint, Orkney, Scotland - 9th July 2011.

Last reported on 27th June to the best of my knowledge, a check of 'The Shunan' on the Orkney mainland mid-evening on 9th July revealed the bird to still be present, giving distant views, loosely associating with six Dunlin. We could not find the bird on two subsequent checks of the site over the following two days. I don't think it has been reported since.

Also seen in this area was an Osprey, Marsh Harrier, at least two Hen Harrier, Peregrine, Short-eared Owl and Black-tailed Godwit.
