Robbie said: "Visiting Hermaness on Unst from February through to late October each year one of the things that stands out, apart from the spectacle of the place, is the rubbish that is used for nest material. This picture was taken at one of the nesting sites as the bird soared around on the updrafts close to where I was sitting. Unfortunately, countless birds must lose their lives either from collecting material like this or getting tangled in it while fishing."
