Sunday 21st August

Despite a dry, mild day with light winds and a good bit of sunshine, it appears that nobody (other than David Dinsley who saw two Black-tailed Godwits over at Loch Kinnabus) had been out birding and found anything to write home about.

I ventured to the North Hide at Gruinart this afternoon and saw another portend of autumn and winter in the shape of a White-tailed Eagle sat on the flats far out at low tide. This is the first I believe to be out here after the breeding season, and we can expect more sightings as the adults and young birds wander to where they can find food most easily - if I were a Greylag Goose I'd be looking over my shoulder these days to see what might be watching me!
