A single Bonxie flew past the bow of the boat this morning as we were going towards Longstone Island to see the seals and all the waders. This is the first time this bird have been close enough for me to get a picture. We have had a good few passing over the last few weeks but it was nice to see one so close.
They are a big bird with what seems to be a large chest with white on its wings. You can see the white on its wings from a distance so they are quite easy to spot.
We have been noticing a few Blue and Yellow tags on Shags lately so we have been writing the letters down and reporting them. This one is from the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth Scotland.
