WAYMARKERS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

Park at the pub­lic car park op­po­site the toi­let block. Check the Bay of Skaill for divers, auks and gulls.

12Walk along the shore check­ing for waders. You walk onto the Brae so you can scan the liv­ing quar­ters of this amaz­ing site.

3Carry on along the coast pass­ing a small Arc­tic Tern colony by the shore. Re­mem­ber th­ese birds are Sched­ule 1 (ad­di­tional pro­tec­tion) so give them a wide berth. You will find other birds breed­ing in sum­mer.

The ge­ol­ogy here is amaz­ing, but don’t go too close to the edge. There is a lot of wind ero­sion in­land, but look out for the flora which in­cludes Scot­tish Prim­rose here.

4Cross over to the Loch and walk back via the road view­ing the breed­ing waders and wa­ter birds.
