Raucous Glaucous!

A few images taken in the last few days here on Shetland. I have spent time in the harbour photographing white-winged gulls, seals and reflections as well as heading out into the hills to track and photograph the stunning Mountain Hare, a British mammal found here in good numbers.

Some wacky harbour reflections - here with a big bull Grey Seal winking at me.

Feeling Blue . . . .

Spot the American Wigeon - a lucky flyby of the thankfully long staying bird in a flock of Eurasian Wigeon in the West of mainland Shetland.
