Cape Wrath

Sunday, June 26th 2016

Words have been few from Cape Wrath but the photographs have arrived safely.  Although the team concentrate on bird ringing they do see other wildlife.

Our Common Spotted Orchids can grow tall, this one is small.

Common Frogs are also seen.

As I have said words are scarce so I am not exactly sure where the following photos were taken.  Notice the rain on the windscreen!

This is the station where they stay for the duration of their visit  There can be beautiful clear blue skies, but not when this was taken.
