Shetlands 2021


The red-throated Diver was another bird I was hoping too catch up with I saw quite a few on all the islands but not many photo opportunities.

Local Kingfishers

 I decided to stay home this weekend and see if the local kingfishers wanted to play. As dawn broke Saturday morning I was ready and waiting I did not  have to wait long before two birds started fishing from the perches I had erected the evening before , both male birds one adult and one juv.

This reminds me of someone but Im not brave enough to say who !!!!

I quite expected the fish to be Rudd but on this occasion it was a small Perch 

Not the most comfortable of places to sit but very enjoyable and peaceful 

Have a good week :0)
