Wow, what a great bird. This was found in the morning of the day of I arrived but I had to wait till 6pm when I arrived on the island. It showed very well hawking over he hill and Easter Lother Water in perfect conditions. I then visited this bird daily and spent quite a few hours with it as it was just superb, hawking over the cliffs between Easter Lother and Dronger was such an experience, never a location one would expect to see a pratincole. An extended set of images of a bird that will be hard to beat as bird of the year.
