Seen in Poolewe, Gairloch.
Cannot blow photo up on Macbook (techno-ignorance) but on camera it blows up to clearly show it is not a diver,cormorant or any other expected bird in this area.

I'd put the ID in for yourself if I was you from what I can make out, essentially a silhouette, it looks remarkably good for a Crane to me. Good spot.
Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
Interesting to see what others think. Having thought Black Stork, I'm now not so sure it is showing black and white (might have been the angle of the screen on my laptop!).
My Flickr photos...
certainly a stork, and I agree it does look like black stork, but lighting can be deceptive.
I wasn't sure till I saw the third photo. You can clearly see it has a white body, black neck and head and you can even see it has pink/red legs. It's clear for me as I have a 26" Hi Res screen, probably wouldn't be as clear on my laptop.
