Red-necked Phalarope

To Fetlar - last time I was here it was to see a Taiga Flycatcher!
This time it was to see a female RNPhalarope (all talons crossed)...there was always the chance that any females may have already left - and left their male partner looking after the children!
However we were fortunate and there was one and showing well...well when you could locate her!

Scope views so we didn't flush her and hand held compact record shots. But she was a beauty!

No -Two views of Otter one a large Dog Otter swimming around a point viewed from cliffs on Unst.

Another view of an otter fishing and feeding in the sea from another part of Unst!

No pictures tho as too far away!
