  5. Your guillemot is actually a black guillemot - rarer and handsomer than the ordinary ones :wink: Good shot!

  6. Hi Alan,

    Many thanks for your ID help. I usually photograph the shipboard bird list (and plants and animals) before leaving the ship, but didn't this time (maybe the Orca's on the last night filled my mind). Lindblad will send out a CD with all the lists but it takes several weeks to get put together. I have just been winging it on the ID's between Sibley's and the poor notes I took.

    From your other posts, I think you would really enjoy one of these trips with Lindblad. You would not be totally out of place, out of 103 passengers, 7 were Brits as were 5 of the 11 leaders.

    Bob
