We stayed the first night at the south end, in the bird observatory and then moved to the lighthouse cottages.
Sea watching was good to start with Little Auks and Sooty Shears which I didn't photograph. I did photograph some gulls passing though.
Great Black-backed Gulls
Brown sea gulls
Nice big moth light
Croues, the round structures were built to keep the frost and wind off young cabbage plants.
North Ronaldsay sheep, broken boat
There was a Bluethroat around here somewherewe couldn't find it though.
This may be Eupeodes luniger but unfortunately unidentifiable to species, it's slightly odd.
Later in the week there were lots of redpolls including some Arctic type things, but I was back to work by then.
