Puffin!

Day 4 saw the weather much improved, Once again we headed off to the Brough of Birsay, but this time the climate remained clement and suited to an exploration
The Brough of Birsay is a tidal island, linked to the mainland by a causeway which can be crossed for about two hours before and after low tide

Time to cross

we decided to circumnavigate the island clockwise, pausing at each rocky cliff face and crevice bird spotting

Many birds were to be seen, Guillemots, Skuas, Eider, Pigeons, Gulls, I even spotted a rabbit or two. But then… did My eyes deceive me?, by the time I had got binoculars in focus, just a crevice in the rocks, must have been wishful thinking. But, no! after many years of looking, My first puffin.

I see a bird

If you want far better pictures of this lone ranger then I suggest you head over to beloved’s blog

have you got a light?

At the headland is a Stephenson lighthouse, from here we headed around and back

Someone has been here before

To explore what is a surprisingly large norse settlement, possibly the site of St Magnus original church apparently.

Well that was an adventure worth waiting for.
