Long-tail
Description:

When you were tiny, did your parents ever say "and what does a duck say..?" and you went quack, quack!
Well, standing in my garden today I could hear Long Tailed and Eider calling - they NEVER say Quack!
Listen here to the L-tD.

Today, far off, many males were calling on the gentle breezes; mixed with the warm calls of eider, it was VERY Orkney

ORKNEY calls

We are very rich in most things. Take a break sometime and bring your bins and camera.
