A Calm Day on North Ronaldsay Ends With Fireworks

Monday 7th November Light N Cloudy, cold 5C

A calmer day, wind-wise, George and I run out of the Bird Observatory lounge when the Northern harrier passes.
Red-breasted merganser

Later a walk down to the beach at Nouster, a group of common seals are on the rocks nearby and I crawl over some grass to get close views.

Down to the harbour, a single kittiwake and a couple of fulmars are sitting on its end.

Back to the Bird Observatory, a female hen harrier passes nearby.

A belated bonfire night after dark is fun with fireworks provided by Alison and Kevin, the wardens of the Bird Observatory.
