This bird didn't seem happy. Perhaps it was the hot weather, I'm not sure.

Sisken 2/2
This sisken didn't seem to know I was there.

At first I wondered what was wrong and then began to think it was actually asleep.

Hjalmar Bjorge and Elizabeth G together in Oban yesterday.

I've photographed both these ex. Norwegian rescue boats on several occasions but never together. As we parked on the North Pier yesterday 'Elizabeth G' was sailing into the harbour and then moored behind Hjalmar Bjorge.

Both boats are now based on the west coast of Scotland and between them do dive and wildlife cruises.
