No, nothing to do with deer-stalking, but the name of a new bird for Islay. This North American wader was found at Lossit, Rinns, yesterday by a visiting birder, who managed to take some photos, of which this is one. Although searched for later in the day, it was not refound, but I'm sure it will be looked for again today. The only other two Argyll records were both on Colonsay, or more strictly speaking, one on Colonsay in January 1984, and one on Oronsay in October 2006.
