Cretzschmar’s Bunting, Buff-bellied Pipit, Collared Flycatcher, Red-flanked Bluetail, Spotted Sandpiper, Hume’s Leaf Warbler and 2x Pacific Golden Plovers are just some of the highlights of an excellent 2008 on North Ronaldsay. Despite such a list the island remains frighteningly under watched, so why not come and stay in 2009.
