Orcas from the garden

Scanning from the garden towards Clestrain Sound, 10km away, and looking for Gannets there were a few big splashes. Gannets I thought and then had a re think as I hadn't seen a bird and those were mighty splashes. Next thing a large black shape hurtles out of the water and makes a more serious kind of splash, ah, so that explains it. Louise had a look as well and the beast breached again. Couldn't see any white markings unfortunately, the distance might have had something to do with that.

The scanning had earlier produced brief views of an Osprey. The pair of Goldfinch from yesterday re-appeared on the front feeder.

No pictures of any of these but some nice hovers and some moths earlier and a backlog of photos to post anyway.
