...unfortunately not Corncrakes, but female pheasants by Loch of Skail on the B9057
Hi karen. Lovely photo's but unfortunately they are of female Pheasants and not Corncrakes. Still very pretty birds though. :-)

In reply to Paul A:
Thanks, though it was too good to be true.
In reply to Karen E:
Hard luck Karen...but just an excuse to go back and find the real thing.

In reply to Alan.:
As Paul says they are pheasants.
But we are always interested in sightings of corncrakes and folk can email Orkney@rspb.org.uk to let us know.
