We have been wanting to go to Toft in the north mainland for a while, but the weather has been against us, hwoever Saturday couldn't have been better. Sunny still weather all day
Grey Seals greeted us as we approached the pier
After a while calling, one came out and walked towards a metal bridge and curled up and started to go to sleep. I was moving round into a position to get a better photo with the Otter still sleeping, i was also down wind so not to disturb the animal when the ferry arrived back with safety warnings blaring out , this alerted the otter and it quickly slipped back into the sea.
A good sized flock of around 250 starling flew round
A few Kittiwake joined Herring and GT BB gulls as the ferry arrived back
After giving illustrated talks to two WI groups and the RVS i have further ones come up soon, down at the RVS at Hoswick this Thursday and the Shetland Photographic Club a week on Wednesday
