Burray is one of the Southern isles on the East side of Scapa Flow linked to the Orkney Mainland by the Churchill Barriers.
I have been living on Burray since August 2012 and this blog is about the birds (and other wildlife) seen around island.
It's nearly halfway through the year and yesterday I saw my first Wheatear on my patch. There seems to have been a lack of this species so far this year. Hopefully a few more will start to appear over the coming weeks.
