Orkney birds

Leaving these wonderful  islands tommorrow after an amazing time. I did not get many good shots as the last few days were spent in pubs and halls listening to great music and sipping the odd Orcadian ale. Thursday was spent on Rousay in a northerly gale, birds were thin on the ground. Did see a Bonxie with prey but blogger wont let me upload the shot. Some shots are from last year but with more time to do birding I would have a few more, as this place is lifting with birds of all kinds.
