It was worth going out. I had to approach Bosquoy from across the fields as the track down there was just ice. This route gives a nice elevated view over the loch and having checked and counted the wildfowl I noticed a bit of a splash to my left. Watched the dog otter for about an hour. Managed to walk closer, he was quite aware that Cora and I were there but just ignored us.
Video quality a bit naff as I'm not used to using it.
The photos aren't much better to be honest
Also down there a Jack Snipe.
On to Palace after lunch, and the Snow Bunting flock had grown. Other suspicious looking characters down there that will require further checking, a few bits and bods bombing about that I failed to get on to.
Then to Stromness where the adult Iceland Gull showed briefly before flying off to roost.
