Birds from my trip

There where a number of birds I wanted to see on my recent trip to Scotland, these are the ones that everyone wants to see.. Crossbill, Crested Tit and something out of the ordinary.

I didn't manage any Crossbill, I did see a Crested Tit, but because I didn't see its face or get a photo of it I'm reluctant to count, gives me the excuse to go again :)

Here are some shots which I did manage, firstly a Linnet.


Oyster Catchers where really common along the coast.



And here's my one out of the ordinary a Sandwich Tern, although they have been sighted in the upper islands they don't show in my book for the coast that we stayed on.


All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm

Other birds we saw on our travels where Gannet, Black Throated Diver :), Osprey (Loch Garton), Eider, Curlew.

Just on another other note I think people may have had problems viewing my blog because of the custom template I used, so I have reverted back to a blogger template and hope that everyone can now read and see everything, please let me know if this was the case.

Thanks for viewing my blog.

Mike.
