Apart from the Seabirds and Eagles (see previous posts) here are a few of the better photographs of some of the birds I had during our week, to be honest the birds were slightly harder to come by than I had expected. Both Cuckoo and Willow Warbler were the exception and seemed to be calling/singing all over the island - a positive sign, as both these birds continue to struggle for numbers south of the border. Summer plumaged Red-throated Divers were on a couple of the lochs but always showing distantly, Arctic Tern and Red-breasted Merganser were seen around the coast, Common Buzzard, Wheatear, Stonechat and Curlew over the moorland, but sadly no sign of any Hen harrier or Short-eared Owl, and as for Corncrake the closest I came to one of those was a bottle of the ale brewed by the Orkney Brewery - none the less a great trip and you always need a good reason to return.
