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.

  1. What stunningly lovely pictures. Just look at the seal's rolls of skin (and expression!) and the Mountain Hare ....

  2. Excellent blog Rebecca, I liked it, I have become a follower. Best regards from Spain.
