There were lots of those birds flying around. Too bad the ferry is so high it is hard to get close ups. It is the Ferry that stirs them out of the water.

For close ups on this bird see my Moroccan blog  Manx Shearwater

Birding for a while before hotel breakfast. The Gannets are also hungry but the Eiders still sleep. It was interesting to see the Gannet actually formed the V on this morning trip to the feeding ground. Flying close to the water.
From my trip to Scotland 2 year ago.

This is the reason why I went to Scotland. To see this bird in action. :) And it was worth it!

Going through the files from Scotland and Arran I found this Hooded Crow  and realised I don´t have much images of crows. So why not post one? This one was at the same place as the young Oystercatchers. It looks pretty angry. Maybe it wanted some dinner.

I was happy to see the White-throated Dipper. I did not really expect it as it has been rather warm this winter so I figured they would stay further north.
