An overcast, drizzly, grey and at times foggy start to the day gave way to a much brighter afternoon, but it went back to grey and drizzly by evening.
Jim Wells and his birders from northern Ireland have come over in their fast boat in the past couple of days. Yesterday they reported 7 different sightings of at least 3 White-tailed Eagles, plus Choughs, 4 Little Egrets, close views of Twite, Hen Harriers and woodcock. Today they found more of the same and supplied a few nice photos of White-tailed and Golden Eagles for the blog - many thanks.
Eslewhere, Elliott Bowman reported 6 Choughs in one of his fields at Cragabus and I can confirm that the juv. Glaucous Gull is still at Uiskentuie.
Thanks to Malcolm Ogilvie for his response to my request for information about heronries. Do keep the info flowing..........
