Scottish Birds

This is my gallery of bird photos taken in various locations in Scotland. There is a variety of photographs, some of very common garden birds which you would see every day, some of speciality species like the high altitude Dotterel, and some images of once-off rarities that I have been lucky enough to catch up with. I suppose really I should be calling this gallery 'Birds in Scotland' rather than 'Scottish Birds' since some of the species shown here are rare vagrants to Scotland rather than native Scottish birds. You need a great deal of luck to catch up with some of them.
Other Scottish birding photographs can be found in the PBase gallery of my friends John Anderson at https://pbase.com/crail_birder who has some superb images mostly taken in Fife.
The official list of Birds of Scotland is maintained by the Scottish Ornithologists' Club (SOC) and can be found on their web site at http://www.the-soc.org.uk/bird-recording/the-scottish-list
