We went south last weekend as a bit of a treat. Mostly Louise fancied a walk in the hills so we headed for our closest Munro. The Stromness 2nd w Iceland Gull waved us away, out onto a choppy but uneventful crossing to Scrabster. Shopping in Thurso was rather exciting and kitchen stuff was purchased. I eventually scored Blue Tit, Great Tit and Coal Tit for the year. Other year ticks were Buzzard and Dipper but best of all were three Golden Eagles. The eagles were over our heads all at one time with a Buzzard which looked tiny. Louise got snowed on whilst the girls and I made a huge sandcastle on the beach. All in all a nice couple of days.
