|Golden Oriole Oriolus oriolus|
What a stunning bird to see in the hand! My 2 other views of Golden Oriole on Fair Isle were quite distant so this was a welcome sight for everyone, most of all Becky.... who finally had her most wanted lifer.

Show his skills by catching a scares Golden Oriole in the delight of us all he gives us a wink.
(to be fair it was a bit windy and I think he had dust in his eye but my other photo was out of focus.)
