Musselburgh, 22nd July 2017

Managed to slink away to the lagoons for an hour. I'm glad I did as, on the approach to the wader scrapes, I heard a distant Grasshopper Warbler reeling. I carried on walking and eventually pinned it down to the pathside about a hundred metres along, where to my surprise it actually appeared in the open for a minute or two! Another pleasant surprise was in store on the scrapes, with two Ruffs representing yet another site tick. The adult Little Gull was showing again, as were two Greenshanks and four Whimbrel of note.
