Corncrake? Photos

  • ...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.

  • Hi Karen,

    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.

    Thanks,

    Kirsty
