Skara Brae

We spent a couple of hours at Skara Brae, the Neolithic village on Orkney which at 5000 years old is older than the pyramids or Stonehenge. It was discovered in 1850 when a severe storm blew away part of a sand dune which buried the village and it is pretty much in the state it was in when it was discovered. 

Not much to report from a wildlife point of view, just a couple of bonxies which flew over and the usual waders round about, curlew, redshank and oystercatcher.
