Had a lovely evening walk out over Sanday with a group of NTS Thistle Camp volunteers today.
A couple of Bonxies guarding heathery knolls, and a mass of Wheatears still on the moor, while on the sea cliffs at Dun Mor the Kittiwakes are now on the nesting ledges along with a few Guillemots. A few Puffins too!
Lots of Gannets diving out in the Sound of Canna, as well as a couple of small rafts of Puffins. Around 18.30 a pod of between 50 and 60 Common Dolphins spent about half an hour feeding at a mackerel shoal, then moved SW through the Sound. Magical!
