Hen Harriers and Orchids

The sun shone till midday then became overcast and as I write now is raining. However
we saw all three Terns on Loch Indaal, Arctic, Common and Little. Gannets out west and two male Hen Harriers too. Plenty of Shelduck and Eider as well. On the hill we found Tormentil, Orchids and Lousewort as well as Milkwort and Bog Cotton. At the merse; Ringed Plover, Dunlin and a single Knot amongst them. Very strange! A good day's birding.
