...unfortunately not Corncrakes, but female pheasants by Loch of Skail on the B9057
Hi karen. Lovely photo's but unfortunately they are of female Pheasants and not Corncrakes. Still very pretty birds though. :-)
Thanks, though it was too good to be true.
Hard luck Karen...but just an excuse to go back and find the real thing.
As Paul says they are pheasants.
But we are always interested in sightings of corncrakes and folk can email Orkney@rspb.org.uk to let us know.
