Corncrakes

  • On holiday in Orkney last week we saw four Corncrakes by the roadside not far from the Bay of Skail, I took photos as I'm a bit of a novice, but I'm not sure how to post the images on here. I read that RSPB Orkney was interested in sightings being reported, is this right?
  • Hi Karen welcome to the community.

    Have a read here and you should be able to add any photos in your thread www.rspb.org.uk/.../191572.aspx

  • I've found contact details but they are from 2012 but you could still try it www.rspb.org.uk/.../appeal-for-reports-of-corncrakes.aspx

  • Hi Karen. We were in Orkney at the start of June but didn't see or hear any Corncrakes. I believe that all sightings and/or heard birds are still of great interest to the RSPB there so I would perhaps follow Alan's link and report your sighting.
