Land up in the Hills of Orkney


On Sunday we had our penultimate Winter birdwalk, crossing the Rendall valley from Firth School to Hackland Kirk, about 7 miles or so of easy going. Highlights were Short Eared Owl and Kestral close encounters, Snipe, Redwing, Snow Buntings, Pintail Ducks and Golden Plovers.


A big flock of Pink footed geese (2-300) and of course thousands of Greylags. Less acclaimed perhaps but wonderful to see in iridescent dress hundred of dancing Lapwings accompanied us most of the way.
