Terns and Stuff.

Scatness - lots of activity on the bathing pool, with 100+ Arctic Terns (constantly harassed by Arctic Skuas), 18 Knot and 3 Dunlin. Loads of Gannets feeding off Lady's Holm and 8 Swallows over Loch of Gards.

Arctic Skuas - top - Ganging up on Arctic Tern. middle two - pale phase with orange ring on left leg. bottom - dark phase.

Arctic Terns - adults and young.
