Well, as my trip to the Moray Firth has not turned up the plethora of new sightings for my BY that I had hoped I have had to resort to nabbing a few BIF shots.

Already on my BY list but this was the first time I've actually seen Whooper Swans in flight

This is a juvenile Black Skimmer that was learning how to skim back in November.

A much more satisfying shot of Barnacle Geese flying overhead than my previous effort.

I don't often bother photographing Gulls, but a bird in flight always catches my eye

 

I actually thought it might be a Baltic Gull, but no, just a Great Black-backed Gull

I'm hoping to get better shots of White-tailed Eagles later in the year, but this will do as a place filler until then

I chose this week to head to Cornwall to search for owls and maybe some harriers. Instead the weather has turned stormy and I'm building my portfolio of spectacular seas. I was distracted by some gulls fishing this afternoon and surprised to find hat this herring gull appears to be missing a leg!

@pomkiwi: I love both shots! to have three birds interacting like that and catching them at it, requires a lot of skill and your seascape is certainly spectacular.
