A site on Sanday Island in the Orkneys that was proposed to the Society as a breeding place for scarce birds. At the time, there was a serious issue with egg-stealing in the area. Today, the site is internationally recognised for its important populations of waders and wildfowl such as purple sandpiper, turnstone and bar-tailed godwit. As part of the East Sanday Coast, it has a number of designations including as a Ramsar site and Special Protection Area (SPA).
