The one that got away...

Friday 1st April comments: So it was no surprise that the Great Auk sighting was false, as April fools day opened with a laugh. Some clever work from resident warden Graeme produced the image and the warden team enjoyed their brief but imaginary 'visitor to the clifftops'. Although it was all a laugh, it really is sad we have lost this bird for ever, as what a sight it must have been - the Farnes did actually once boast this incredible Auk, but not anymore.
