Ritchie Dinnes reports this group of curlews which he spotted on the north coast passing through on their annual migration.
He also sends this picture. He says, "I was enjoying the birdlife on Orkney two weeks ago when I captured this image of a bird which I could not identify." He thinks he may now know what it is, but can anyone help?
And I am rather at a loss as to what this is, seen bobbing around in the waves off the Ormsaigbeg shore this evening.
