Thirty Days Wild, thirty posts throughout June (and July, and August, I’m so,so tardy) something that is grounded in our wild world. This year posts are from our travels around the north coast of Scotland on the North Coast 500 route and a visit to Orkney. Stand by, for lots of sky, sea, wildlife, history, Spud the dog and random musings.
I think this little bird is a ring plover (writing a blog its a bit like handing your school homework for marking, I know someone will tell me if I’m wrong, just don’t tell me to stop in at playtime and write lines).
What ever he or she is, I think its a wee sweetie of a bird, I’d call it the bobbing bandit bird, as it bobs about in a clockwork kind of way and it looks like a cartoon bandit with its black eye mask and neckerchief, it was pretty good at hiding itself too, its not easy to spot amongst the pebbles.
And are these delightful birds dunlin? .
There were so many birds to see on this fabulous journey
