This is the Temminck's, not the big cat!
Best of all on the trip were two different pods of killers, one seen from land between Stromness and Hoy and the other seen close to the boat. I've tried to upload a video of them but it keeps rejecting it! Here's Bill after seeing them.
I think this man is pretty happy!
On the last day we drove down to South Ronaldsay, just exploring really and stumbled across a really amazing looking site. Here's a few pics of the habbo, this place is one of the rarest looking sites I've ever seen, it's almost as good as the gulley trap on Fair isle!
It starts off like this
Gets a bit denser
Gets a bit deeper and the trees more mature
And then is like this!
Here's the thing though, I've never heard of the place! The signpost at the end of the road says Windwick and there's a hut with ringing equipment in it so the place is obviously (well)watched. It's on the east side of South Ron so it must get stuff, it had marked trails running through it so it can't be private so why have I never heard of it? The only two reasons I can come up with are it's known by a different name or the people watching it don't put news out! I know one thing if we are up there in Sept/Oct I'm having a couple of days there
