Those of you who heard Chris commentating on the grey seal webcams or who read my post yesterday will know that we promised to share some of the photos we took of the wildlife of Stronsay. Mine are, ahem, still at the developer's so until I get them back here are Chris's (with a couple of non-wildlife ones thrown in for good measure). It's not all about the seals up here...

    Great shots Chris. Thank you for sharing some of the other wildlife on the island.
    Beautiful waxwing and stunning rainbow...
    Looks like a rough day fishing!

    Love the black Guillemot pic especially, very up lifting to the spirit after today's drama and trauma on the beaches. Beautiful waxwing too. Thanks for keeping us going with the commentaries as well. Glad you are finding time to get around and about.Enjoy the couple of days you have left.
