A trip to North Ronaldsay with work gave the opportunity for some wildlife watching whilst waiting for the plane back to Kirkwall. On this northernmost of the Orkney islands, it is always time well spent.

|One of the many Twite from a large flock which were feeding in the bird crop at the Bird Observatory|
