About this book

Orcadian Raymond Besant has an instinctive knack of finding and photographing Orkney nature as few have seen it. Naturally Orkney includes some unique images from the islands' outdoors; a Red Throated Diver, sitting on her nest, being pestered by midgies; an inquisitive young seal, nosing and nudging a hand-held underwater camera; an otter, wrestling with a huge, freshly caught Conger Eel... they all feature in this book.

The BBC Natural History Unit and RSPB have both commissioned Besant to film wildlife. His skill and passion for the natural world are abundantly obvious in Naturally Orkney.

"a book we have all been waiting for!"
– Eric Meek, RSPB Orkney Officer 1981-2012
