Thursday 30th June

A great day here over, not only the weather but for birds of prey too. On the Rhinns today we had 7 different Hen Harriers, 5 males and 2 Ringtails, not bad going considering we were not out looking for Harriers, really just out and about as normal! Coming home this evening there was dead Stoat on the roadside, just this side of Rockside road end. Margaret this morning had a Peregrine being mobbed by a couple of Hooded Crows and a visitor in the cottages had seen a Golden Eagle out on a thermal further along the crag. Back to smaller "normal" birds and there are now 2 Siskins coming regularly to the bird feeders at the kitchen window.
