Atlantic Grey Seal. We came across this young animal whilst walking
round Hoxa Head.
Black Guillemots. We saw these at several sites.
Common Gull. Although this was an adult is was quite novel seeing
chicks at several locations.
Fulmars. We came across Fulmars anywhere there was any half decent nest
sites for them.
Guillemots at Marwick Head.
Lapwing. There were good numbers of breeding waders, mainly Curlew
Distant Long-tailed Duck, quite a good record for June on Orkney.
Oystercatcher was b y far the commonest breeding wader.
Agitated Redshank guarding young.
Juvenile Wheatear. We encountered Wheatears all along the coast
along with Rock Pipits.
It's back to normal now and I can't wait to get back out at the obs now that autumn is here!
